We are taking a family trip to Lapland in Finland later this month. This destination has been on my wish list for a long time and now our son is six I think he is old enough to be enjoying a trip like this. We will be doing lots of activities such as husky and reindeer sledge tour. And we are hoping to get to see the Northern lights. It can be extremely cold in Finland (last week it was -40 °C (-40 F) so we need to get appropriate winter gear. In cold conditions you should wear layers to beat the cold: thermal clothing as a base layer (preferably made of merino wool), then a fleece jacket and then a water and winter proof jacket & ski pants. As I was browsing the web for good snow & winter gear I decided to create a post about this topic.
