The top tourism attractions of Finland highlighted in magical TV series

We’re proud to announce that Magic in Lapland, the TV series starring awarded Finnish magician and illusionist Henri Kemppainen, is now ready. The English-language series offers visual fireworks and reveals the most mystic and beautiful destinations in Finland.

The 5-part series was filmed in different parts of Finland – Helsinki, Vihti, Oulu region, Rokua National Park, Hossa, Puolanka, Vuokatti, Kemi, Levi, Lemmenjoki, Saariselkä, the National parks of Pallas and Ylläs, and Kilpisjärvi.

World class team

Behind the magic, in addition to Kemppainen, is a group of internationally renowned names. Dozens of top performers around the world have helped in designing the illusions, together with Christian Engblom, the magic consultant that has performed in the Penn&Teller show.

– The series is the most important thing in my career so far. Performances on big arenas were nothing compared to this challenge, and I am more than pleased with the end result, says Kemppainen, who got bruised and burned during the filming.

First deal with Finnair

Magic in Lapland is first broadcast in Finland by Finnair, who runs the series in its entertainment system for the delight of tourists.  The series is narrated by Finnish actor Peter Franzén, known e.g. from the HBO series Vikings.

– We showcased the series to dozens of TV networks around the world in Cannes this spring, and got a lot of interest, especially from Asia, says Executive producer Teemu Hostikka.

The distributor for Magic in Lapland is Lightning International, with offices in Hong Kong and Great Britain. The series was also presented in Brussels in December 2019, and received big applause from the international audience.

– We hope to be able to publish more happy news about where the series will be shown very soon, says Producer Topi Paananen.
