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, delve into a myriad of winter activities and meet Lapland's most famous resident, Father Christmas himself. Finland is a fantastic destination for families, couples or groups and is perfect for those who like the great outdoors.

With 187,988 lakes, 179,584 islands and 35 national parks, Finland offers plenty to explore and a great option for active travellers. In the winter, Finnish Lapland and is a winter playground and one of the best places on earth to see the Northern Lights. From husky dogs, to snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross-country skiing and of course, Santa's Grotto, Lapland is an adventurous winter wonderland providing fun for visitors of all ages. In the south 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 can 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.
