I am planning my wife's b'day surprise in January 2015. I'd like us to spend upto 2 nights at the famous glass igloos at Kakslauttanen in the hopes of Northern Lights. It will be out first time visiting Finland so want to spend upto 3-4 days more in the country and that is where I can really use help with suggested itineraries. We are flying in from The Netherlands. Not sure what are suggested places to stay, cities to visit and things to do in Lapland. I dont want to spend much time in travel and would like to be on budget (ofcourse, after Kakslauttanen :)).
Is visiting Helsinki before or after Kakslauttanen a practical idea? Also, is there a place to look for any packages/flight discounts that I can look for such an itinerary?
