Travel to Finland
Finland is a land of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and the winter darkness, urban and rural, East and West.
Located between East and West, with snowy winters and warm, light-filled summers, Finland offers a number of fascinating contrasts. Finland's unspoilt forests, as well as its thousands of islands and lakes, offer plenty of opportunities for visitors to enjoy beautiful natural surroundings.
As you look out from the plane, the first impression you may have is that there are a lot of trees… an endless carpet of forest, with many lakes and small towns in between. It’s kind of a surprise when you land in Helsinki to find that the airport is so modern and efficient. Not a polar bear in sight. It’s truly amazing how uniquely exotic each season can be. Four times a year, nature changes its uniform completely – colour, light, temperature, sounds and smells. Everything changes in a way that happens nowhere else.
The Finns are also considered to be cool – a bit quiet and reserved. However, they are actually warm, friendly, hospitable and especially honest people once you get to know them and we encourage you to do just that.
What to do in Finland at least once:
- Swim in an icy pool
- Go to the sauna
- Be inspired in the homeland of legendary composer Jean Sibelius
- Hop from island to island in the Archipelago of south-western Finland
- Buy a Finnish design classic
- Rent a cottage by a lake
- Take a walk in an old wooden town (Porvoo, Rauma, etc.)
- Meet Santa Claus and ask if he really exists (Don’t pull off his beard)
- Eat a ‘Karjalanpiirakka’ (fast food that looks like a boat)
- Walk in the woods
- Drive on an icy road
- Meet a herd of reindeer while skiing in Lapland
