This week we travelled to Lapland. The airport was really small, But everything is ok. There is only one store, but I liked it, because for less than 10 minutes from landing you are out of the airport. Passport check is almost in the exit ot the sleeve from the Palin (not sure if this is the right word?!) Otside there are always buses to the centre and hotels, because their schedule is according to the flights. 7 euro to the centre. You can not get lost or make a mistake.
