Family Friendly

From meeting the one and only Santa Claus in Rovaniemi to staying at a lakeside cottage over the white summer months, Finland offers some unforgettable experiences to the whole family.

Finns themselves love the nature. Hiking, skiing, fishing or berry picking in the forest – they are some of the activities Finnish families enjoy in their free time. To truly understand our country and its people, head outdoors and into the wild. If you need a little guidance, go to a wildlife park such as Ranua in Lapland or Haltia Nature Centre in Helsinki. Your holiday will be one even the littlest of family members will never forget.
