72 hours in Finland
Welcome to Finland, a country with its own emoticons. Here you will get inspired in a natural way. Think magic Northern lights in the skies of Lapland or the sleepless summer nights. Or lazy days at the cottage listening the sound of silence with an occasional cozy crack from the fireplace and happy-all-night-long birdsong in the spring. Rain or shine, Finns like to hang glued by the outdoor grill in the summer and run crazy for a swim neverminding the chill.
In three days you will have time to travel to Lapland and whisper your Christmas wish list to Santa Claus, cross the Arctic Circle and say hello to reindeers. You get to sleep in a light house and hop on some of the thousands of islands in the Archipelago Trail or rent a cottage and go fishing in Lakeland by any of the beloved clear blue lakes.
You are not alone though, there are about 500 000 cottages, 3,2 million saunas and 190 000 lakes in Finland. That adds up a lot of sausage eating, beer drinking and wood chopping Finns.
Full of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and winter darkness, urban and rural, East and West.
