Finland

As a country where two-thirds of its territory is covered by forest and a tenth covered by lakes, breathtaking scenery is not hard to find in Finland. Cathedrals, museums and some of the most striking architecture can be found in the capital of Helsinki, whilst the Lapland province has a view of the Northern Lights alongside its luxurious ski resorts.

General Information

Maybe not the country you would initially think of as a holiday destination but Finland has a completely different experience to offer. Due to its location, Northern Finland is part of Lapland and sees a variety of weather, from blankets of beautiful snow to long summer evenings in the midnight sun. In winter, head to our favourite 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 heads whilst snuggled up in a comfy warm igloo. It is also the perfect destination for those looking for a bit of adventure. At the resort, you can experience a husky ride, reindeer sleigh ride, ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and if you go during the Christmas period you can visit Santa Claus himself! This resort 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 (which never sets!). If you are brave test the waters and head for a summer lake swim or head on a horse safari, go gold panning or test your driving skills on an ATV safari. There are direct flights to Ivalo the heart of Finnish Lapland from London on certain days in winter. This means it’s easier than ever to visit this incredible place and experience the northern lights in a glass igloo.

What Everyone Does In Finland

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.

What Some People Do In Finland

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.

What No One Else Does In Finland

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.
