Finland Convention Bureau

Enter the winter wonderland

The arrival of snow and ice in November transforms Finland into a snowy playground for action-packed activities.

Not only a slippery surface for snowmobile, husky and reindeer tours, winter driving or icebreaker cruises, snow and ice are used as building materials for constructing castles and entire villages.

Spend a cosy night in a snow hotel, enjoy an exquisite lunch in a snow restaurant and party in an ice disco! If skies are favourable, you might even witness nature’s fireworks, the Northern Lights.

Find out more on the Finnish winter via the links below.
