Think Finland and think endless landscapes, countless lakes and islands. To the north, the wild terrain of Finland is an ideal destination to witness the Northern Lights or delve yourself into a myriad of winter activities. Ideal in both winter and summer, Finland is waiting to be explored for those who like the great outdoors.
With 187,988 lakes, 179,584 islands and 35 national parks, there is quite a bit of Finland to explore. If you like the great outdoors then there is much to see and do. In the winter, you can head north to Lapland and spend time in one of the best places on earth to see the Northern Lights. From husky dogs, to snowshoeing, ice fishing and cross-country skiing, Lapland is an adventurous winter wonderland. Move south, and uncover the Gothic delights of Helsinki and possibly tie in a visit to its famous Christmas Market. In the summer, the Finns all travel to the lakes where many own a log-cabin where you whittle away the days exploring and relaxing. Lapland also offers tremendous opportunities to explore in the summer - with super long days you can canoe down its many rivers, or trek through its breathtaking scenery.
