Accessible adventures in Finland

Explore the great Finnish wilderness, cultural delights or the Arctic magic – the accessible way.

A forerunner in many equality issues, accessibility too has been part of Finnish construction and service planning since the 1970s. Recent years have seen some important leaps forward, as many Finnish cities, cultural and tourist destinations are stepping up to the challenge to create sustainable services for all users, regardless of their physical limitations, disabilities or age.

Bigger cities particularly are quite well in step with accessibility issues and people with impaired mobility are a regular part of the street view. Helsinki, a city of endless seaside views and green parks, is particularly easy to navigate with a wheelchair. Despite the presence of numerous cobbled streets many touristic destinations, events, museums and theatres are entirely accessible.
