There is an abundance of good food, superb design, interesting museums and unique architecture. Visit Helsinki and you will see why it is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world to live in!
Home of Santa Claus
Lapland is the northernmost part of Finland with a nature that invites various outdoor activities. This large arctic area is known for Santa Claus, but perhaps most for the fantastic light phenomena that appear in both summer and winter. The land of the indigenous Sami people, known as Sápmi or Sami Homeland, also extends across the northern part of the region. Explore Finnish Lapland, Europe's last great wilderness!
Finnish coast and archipelago
Finland's coast has it all - from bustling archipelago communities to remote lighthouses, historic mansions and national parks. With more than 50,000 small islands scattered in the sea, this is the world's largest archipelago with many hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Pellinge is an island group that has been inhabited since the 16th century. Today it is an active community of almost 300 people. And we really mean actively: there are more than 120 events held on the islands during the summer. Among other things Midsummer festival, children's day, square trade and flea market, boat races and old fire dance. It teems with cafes, restaurants and shops as well as galleries selling handicrafts.
It is in Finnish Lakeland that Finns recharge their batteries and reconnect with nature. There are things to do here throughout the year. You can take a trip on the lake, fish, paddle, swim in the ice and go ice skating. If there is a lake, there is of course a cabin, find a cabin and relax the Finnish way. As Europe's largest lake district, Finnish Lakeland has plenty of room for everyone, so you can find your own little donut spot.
Is there anything more typically Finnish than a cottage by a lake surrounded by lush forest.
Finnish Lakeland waiting for you
Take the plunge and try the Finnish routine that's guaranteed to make you feel better: the holy trinity – cabin, sauna, lake.
Every summer, Finns go to their cabins (or mökki) located in the forests around the country's 188,000 lakes. There they spend the midnight sun months (and winter too) resting, relaxing and being close to nature. There are more than half a million cottages in Finland. A fifth of Finns own their own, and the rest rent or borrow a cabin from their friends.
