From the pastel, neoclassical streets of Helsinki, to the farthest reaches of northern Lapland, Finland astounds at every turn. The Nordic nation has been inhabited for over 4,500 years and over time, has developed into a prosperous country with a distinct culture. Over 70% of the land is covered in forests, culminating in fresh air and spectacular scenery.
Head north to the famed Lappi (lapland) region and prepare to be stunned by the winter wonderland that awaits. The maakunta’s (region) capital Rovaniemi is known as the home of Santa Claus himself and boasts some of the world’s best views of the Aurora Borealis. Go reindeer-sledding through the snowy forests and sip warm glögi (spiced berry juice) as the northern lights swirl across the sky. Finland is an unforgettable destination for the inspired traveller.
