This is the Lapland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guidebook.

Lapland casts a powerful spell: there’s something lonely and intangible here that makes it magical. The midnight sun, the Sámi peoples, the aurora borealis (Northern Lights) and roaming reindeer are all components of this – as is Santa Claus himself.
