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."
