Your wild side belongs in Finland – it’s the place for every adventurer

 When the summer sunshine gives way to winter, the magical aurora borealis brightens up the sky.  Finland is a place of extremes. It is home to the most forest land in Europe, a creative foodie scene, the most saunas per capita, the best place to see the aurora borealis, and some of the most fascinating design and architecture in the world. You're warmly invited to indulge in spectacular natural beauty and cultural delights and discover why Finland is ranked as the happiest country in the world.

Here’s what you can do in Finland…

  • In the Finnish Lapland, the aurora borealis – or northern lights – can appear more than 200 nights per year

  • There are more than 70,000 islands within Finland’s archipelago with many old lighthouses and plenty of outdoor activities 

  • The Finnish term “Everyman’s right” (Jokamiehen Oikeus) means that anyone can walk freely in nature here

  • Helsinki boasts one of the most bustling culinary scenes in Europe, set in the heart of the capital city

  • Finland’s ski season lasts from October to May, with winter slopes lit during dark hours and springtime sun shining until late at night

  • Warm, welcoming saunas can be found virtually everywhere here, with more saunas per capita than anywhere in the world

  • According to a Readers’ Digest test on honesty, 11 out of 12 wallets deliberately left behind were returned to the rightful owners – you’re safe in Finland

  • Finland’s style has set global trends for decades – from James Bond to Jackie Onassis – with avant-garde design throughout city centers

  • Santa Claus officially resides at the top of the Arctic Circle near Rovaniemi, and you can visit him and his reindeer all year long

  • The Finns drink more coffee than anyone else in the world, which means hundreds of charming coffee shops for cozy breaks from exploring

  • Visiting a sauna is an important part of Finnish culture – being invited to one as a guest is a true honor. It is considered vital to cleanse the body and nourish the soul.

Finland is on my bucket list (imagine that!) and although I always thought I would go see it during the summer, I just might need to bundle up and go during the winter.  Who doesn’t want to see those Northern lights!  Happy travels!
