Think You Can't Afford a Bucket List? Try These Fabulous Freebies around the World ...

I know they aren’t going to be totally free because no travel adventure is – unless it’s on your doorstep – but these experiences I have for you are free when you get there. And the great thing about these freebies is that they are totally bucket list-worthy. Let’s take a look …

1. Northern Lights, Lapland, Finland

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Lapland, home to Father Christmas and the Sami people, is an unlikely place for thrifty travelers to find travel freebies, especially when considering the price of a burger and a beer in Scandinavia. For those dreaming of the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), Lapland is the perfect place to come. From late autumn to early spring, the Aurora Borealis lights up the Arctic Circle in magical hues of green, orange, purple and red. Sit on the icy banks of Lake Inari, which lies along the bus route between Ivalo and Rovaniemi, and enjoy this spectacular show absolutely free of charge. Both towns are accessible with flights from Helsinki.
