RETREAT TO A COTTAGE BY THE LAKE
Escaping to the countryside or wilderness is a national way of relaxation. Half a million cottages ensure there’s a quiet retreat for every taste.
DISCOVER THE ROOTS OF SAUNA
Sauna is a place to get in tune with your thoughts, do some deep pondering and then wash away your worries. It’s as much about cleaning the mind as it is cleaning the body.
WITNESS THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
Despite their reputation of elusiveness, the Northern Lights appear 200 nights a year in Finnish Lapland.
CYCLE THE ARCHIPELAGO
Get to the Åland islands and back by taking a cruise ship from Helsinki or Turku. Or follow the inland waterways and farm landscapes, stopping at some of the country’s best attractions along the way.
PICK BERRIES AND MUSHROOMS
From Finnish salmon and trout to duck and snow grouse, from reindeer and elk to blueberries and cloudberries, it’s all wild and delicious – and good for you.
SPEND THE NIGHT IN AN IGLOO
The reindeer skins and blankets provide perfect insulation between your sleeping bag and the bed carved from ice. Falling asleep in an igloo under a star-filled northern sky is an experience you will never forget.
EXPLORE THE SNOWY WILD ON SKIS
Strap on your cross-country skis and let’s go. We’ll cruise the forests and stop for hot coffee and cocoa in huts along the way.
