WOW! This may be the cheapest bucket-list Lapland Finland vacation we could find. Where round-trip flights to Rovaniemi are $700+ and glass igloos are easily $1,000+ a night during peak winter months, you can fly round trip to Helsinki, grab a round-trip sleeper train (The Santa Claus Express) to Rovaniemi, and spend four nights in a well-rated (4/5 on TripAdvisor) glass igloo with breakfast from $873 per person. This example itinerary is for October—right before the busy winter season kicks off. However, October is a great time to visit being during Northern Lights season.

Pirate tip: It's free to visit Santa Claus Village, so add this to your itinerary.

*Please note that on the final day, the train arrives in central Helsinki at 6:27 am on October 8th, you'll want to allow yourself plenty of time to get through the airport before your flight, so it may be worth grabbing a flight with a later departure time, or leaving a day earlier from Rovaniemi, or extending your trip by one more day if you have an early flight on October 8th.
