From the land of a thousand lakes, here are the first five to visit.
The Finnish Lakeland is the largest lake district in Europe: a blue and green labyrinth of lakes, islands, rivers and canals. These waters offer wellbeing and activities all year round, like cottage life, summer cruises, fishing, paddle boarding and ice skating. Lakes and islands are entwined with one another, forming ridges and passageways to secret lagoons and hideaways – perfect for lake-hopping.
This is the Land of a Thousand lakes, but these are the best five for starting your journey – and falling in love.
