A LAPLAND ranger has revealed what it’s really like to live and work in Finland’s arctic circle.
Lucy, who is known as _Footluce on TikTok, spends her days singing and dancing in the snow, visiting Santa’s Office, and spending time with huskies and reindeers.
In a series of videos, Lucy explained what her life in Finland entails.
She said: “We welcome everyone into Lapland with some songs and carols.
“We give them loads of information, make sure they’re OK, and then also give them some speeches on the coaches.
“My main job is to work at the arctic circle centre, which is basically the activity centre where you can see huskies, reindeers, go in big igloos and do other things as well.”
Lucy explained how she can spend nine hours working in the arctic circle centre where the temperature can be as low as -22 degrees celsius.
Despite the cold conditions, Lucy said: “But it is a really fun job because you do get to sing and dance in the snow all day – and work with huskies and reindeer.”
As well as outdoor activities, the lapland rangers also shows guests to their tables during the gala dinner and sing songs and play games with the kids too.
She added: “This job is literally the coolest job I’ve had in my life.”
In her free time, Lucy relaxes in the saunas and takes to the slopes for a spot of skiing.
While this lifestyle may sound expensive, Lucy’s food and accommodation costs are covered.
She said: “The only thing that I spend my money on is alcohol or extra snacks that I want, and skiing as well but we also get a discount.
The seasonal worker has 35,000 followers on TikTok, and one of her videos has been viewed over 400,000 times.
Several users agreed that Lucy was living her best life in the comments.
One person wrote: “What an amazing job!! Enjoy!”
While one of her own customers was quick to comment: “My family left Lapland on Wednesday and just want to say massive thank you to you all for such a magical holiday! Yous [sic] all are amazing.”
This isn’t the only festive job on the cards in Lapland, other seasonal work includes planning Santa trips to the area.
If you don’t fancy the cold weather conditions, there are plenty of other dream travel jobs.
We spoke to some of them which includes a caretaker of the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, a bookseller in the Maldives, and a rescue cat worker in Greece.
