Finland for New Years?

Finland is set to become one of the places to be on New Years.

The Finnish city of Rovaniemi, which is the capital of Lapland, was praised for its beautiful scenery including "snow-capped mountains and giant Christmas trees.

Wego wrote in their report: "Proclaimed to be the official hometown of Santa Clause, Rovaniemi gives travellers the opportunity to rejoice one of a kind Christmas. Spotting the reindeer on the winter streets of Lapland is a perfect way to cherish this joyous occasion. An ideal winter landscape surrounded by snow-capped mountains; the giant Christmas trees decked with shimmering gifts is a sight to behold."

London, England and Paris, France also appear on the list of destinations.

They added: "The second trending festive destination is London. Whether enjoying the city's colorful illumination at the Regent Street or spotting the giant Christmas tree at the Trafalgar Square, these celebrations add charm to London. Each year Hyde Park hosts the Winter Wonderland with attractions like outdoor ice rink, fairground rides, circus and Christmas market. The most iconic New Year celebration happens by the Thames River with live music and endless fireworks ...

"Paris is always revered to be the best romantic destination to welcome the New Year with your loved one. The City of Lights brims with joy and merriment where the architectural landmarks like Champs-Elysees Avenue and the Eiffel Tower are lit up in all their glory. On New Year's Eve, thousands of people gather at the Arc de Triomphe to enjoy the firework display at midnight followed by a light show projected on the Arc."
