For a relaxing winter holiday, pick out this small town in the Northern part of Finland. A few skiing slopes, lots of outdoor activities possible and in the town enough restaurants and bars to enjoy a winterbreak!

Beautiful landscape, fresh snow every day, with kind and friendly locals and natives to help a foreigner learn how to ski. I say scrap the French/Swiss/Italian resorts, and go here, as less crowded, and far nicer. Food delicious, drinks continuous, and smiles and laughter everywhere.

What a god forsaken mess this place is. The absolute worst excesses of ski infrastructure with no thought whatsoever for how it might look and feel. After 3 hours in minus 10 falling in the ice because a ludicrously overpriced unfriendly and sterile restaurant won't...More
