Lively Oulu is a gateway to urban culture as well as the unique nature of the North. The city is located on the shores of the Bay of Bothnia - where modern business and technology meet Northern peace and exoticism.
Old Porvoo is one of Finland’s most idyllic districts. The cobbled streets are lined with old, doll-house-like houses and on top of the hill a white stone church looks over the river valley. Wonderful in the summer, magical during wintertime. Only one hour East of Helsinki.
In a country where people move en masse to the countryside in the summer and where forest coverage is 75%, it's no wonder ecological tourism has taken off so rapidly and steadily. Old farms are opening their doors to visitors from all over the world and their organic food can be gobbled or just nibbled while watching sheep pasturing in a green meadow.
