In sophisticated Helsinki, marvel at imposing cathedrals and world-class museums showcasing striking architecture and design. Under the fluttering Northern Lights, Lapland reveals a winter wonderland of deluxe ski resorts and singular glass igloos amid the snow-draped Arctic.

Visit the hidden gem of Tampere, a city that sits nestled between two great lakes, offering stunning views. It’s also the sauna capital of the world – there are more than 50 public saunas to be found in the region. Some of them sit by the lakeside, so you can warm up after wild swimming in the fresh, cool waters.

History lovers can head to Turku, a city dating back to the 13th century. This former Finland capital is known for being the location of Turku Castle, a fortress that’s nearly 700 years old. Here, you can uncover ancient Finnish stories and find out what life used to be like.

Adventurous travelers can immerse themselves in authentic Lappish culture on tours like husky sledding through pine forests or private reindeer safaris across the tundra. Relish Michelin-starred cuisine highlighting regional flavors, then retreat to a scenic spa sanctuary. Take the little ones to Lapland to visit Santa Claus himself before retreating to your snow-topped lodge accommodation to warm up in the sauna or spend time by the open fire.

Yet Finland offers more than frosty adventures. During the endless summer days from May to August, roam rugged National Parks on guided treks, paddle kayaks across remote lakes, and explore skerries dotting the Baltic on 50,000-island archipelago cruises. As the Midnight Sun perpetually hovers above the horizon, locals enjoy nocturnal swims and all-night festivals – extraordinary spectacles for your Nordic bucket list.

With our expertise, a luxury journey through Finland delivers both winter Northern Lights extravagance and summertime Scandinavian splendor.

Travel Information

Finland might not be the first country that comes to mind when you think about vacation destinations, but Finland is a truly unique part of the world that offers travelers a completely different experience. Due to its location, Northern Finland is part of Lapland and sees a variety of weather, from blankets of beautiful snow to long summer days with the midnight sun.

In winter, head to our favorite resort Kakslauttanen – known as the Lapland Igloo hotel – and stay in an iconic glass igloo where you can watch the Northern Lights dance above your head whilst snuggled up in a comfy warm igloo. It is also the perfect destination for those looking for winter adventures. At the resort, you can experience a husky ride, reindeer sleigh ride, ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding – and if you go during the Christmas period, you can visit Santa Claus himself!

There are direct flights to Ivalo, the heart of Finnish Lapland, from London on certain days in the winter. This means it’s easier than ever to visit this incredible place and experience the northern lights in a glass igloo. Finland’s largest gay scene can be found in Helsinki.

Finland is not a write-off for the summer, in fact, it offers a truly unique experience. The snow-covered ground disappears to reveal beautiful green landscapes bathed in gorgeous sunshine. In fact, between mid-May and mid-August, the sun doesn’t set at all – a spectacular phenomenon that you must witness once in your lifetime. If you are feeling brave, test the waters on a summer lake swim, or head out on a horseback riding tour. Go gold panning or test your driving skills on an ATV safari. You definitely won’t be short on things to do in Finland during the summer months.

Finland is recognized for its progressive stance on LGBTQ+ rights, fostering an inclusive environment for the community. Same-sex relationships have been legally recognized and protected since 2002, and Finland legalized same-sex marriage in 2017, affirming its commitment to equality.

The country actively promotes anti-discrimination measures and provides legal protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. LGBTQ+ individuals enjoy the right to adopt children, and Finland’s society, in general, reflects an accepting attitude towards diversity, making it a welcoming destination for travelers and a champion in advancing LGBTQ+ rights within Europe.

Helsinki is the capital of Finland. It is renowned for its design culture and the fact that there is over 100km of shoreline around the capital means you’ll see sea everywhere. There are also 300 islands in an archipelago.

Urban saunas are a staple of Finnish life. You’ll find both traditional saunas and design-led saunas. Strip down to your swimwear and sweat out the stresses of back home in one of the country’s public saunas.

Very few people visit Lapland during the summer but it’s definitely one to experience. Places like the Lemmenjoki National Park is full of waterfalls, lakes and forest trails to immerse yourself in and the midnight sun shines brightly.

With its harmonious blend of trendsetting design, vibrant culture and pristine natural beauty, Helsinki beckons luxury travelers who are eager to experience Finland’s sophisticated capital city.

Stroll picturesque harborside paths before exploring the Design District’s showrooms, boutiques and museums highlighting iconic Nordic aesthetics. Wander past street art and historic neoclassical landmarks in landmark-rich downtown or take a day trip to majestic Porvoo for a dose of colorful medieval charm along the river.

Helsinki provides easy access to the Finnish Archipelago, a stunning coastal island chain perfect for swimming, sailing and unwinding away from urban energy. Back onshore, the city’s walking and biking trails tempt active travelers while world-class hotels, critically acclaimed New Nordic restaurants and indulgent day spas satisfy those craving pure relaxation. With endless summer daylight during June and July, Helsinki dazzles at the height of its White Nights festival season.

Yet winter magnifies the city’s magic. Snuggle in sleek lounges behind floor-to-ceiling windows and await the dazzling Northern Light displays over the harbor. A chilled sparkling cocktail or local craft brew finishes off perfect days in Helsinki.

Nestled between two expansive lakes, Tampere delights luxury travelers with vibrant street art, abundant nature trails and Scandinavia’s most exquisite lakeside saunas.

Stroll along scenic walking paths to admire rapids and waterfalls. Visit intriguing niche museums and historic red-brick factories that are now home to quirky shops and cafes.

Just an hour and a half from Helsinki, Tampere acts as the perfect luxurious weekend break to restore body and soul – Finnish style. Indulge in a relaxing massage before sweating out your stresses the traditional way – in your very own private lakeside sauna. After, take a dip in the crisp waters before a supper of seasonal New Nordic cuisine, washed down with a craft cocktail.

With warm summers bathed in the Midnight Sun and snow-covered winters prime for chasing the elusive Northern Lights, Tampere entices luxury travelers year-round with its vibrant urban pulse and harmonious nature.

Achieve urban revitalization and Scandinavian wellness all in one stylish, laid back package when you choose luxurious Tampere.

As Finland’s former capital and oldest city, Turku enchants luxury travelers with medieval charm, maritime history and contemporary culture.

Just a two hour ferry ride from Stockholm, Turku tempts as the perfect luxurious weekend break to indulge body and mind.

Book a relaxing spa treatment before heading to the majestic outdoor market hall to sample artisanal Finnish delicacies. Wander through expansive squares and stroll on streets lined with brightly-hued 19th century wooden houses. Discover the towering 13th century cathedral and grand castle, now a history museum. Tuck into Nordic cuisine using fresh coastal ingredients.

Discover Finland’s complex history and culture while appreciating the modern art and food scenes when you choose to make stylish Turku your Nordic base.

In northernmost Finnish Lapland lies a magical winter wonderland that offers travelers rare access to exquisite Arctic experiences.

Stay in a cozy yet lavish log cabin overlooking the icy splendor of silent forests and lakes. Or choose accommodation truly reflecting the setting by spending the night snuggled inside a glass-domed igloo, watching for the vibrant Northern Lights.

By day, dash across snowy hills behind your own eager sled-dog team, before you ease your aching muscles in your cabin’s private sauna and hot tub.

Take time also to learn ancient Lappish handicrafts and sample smoked salmon, cloudberry liqueur and other local delicacies that celebrate Lapland’s indigenous Sámi culture that is still thriving today.
