Finland has more than 180,000 lakes and endless forests. The coastline is 1,100 kilometres long, with countless beautiful islands and coastal indentations. Finland offers one of the most extensive and unspoiled natural environments in Europe. Superb range of activities in all four seasons will fulfill your dreams.

You can enjoy both action-packed thrills and soothing silence in one of the purest natural settings in the world. Activities in summer time include river rafting, sailing schooners or riverboats, ATV-safaris, fishing, golfing, biking and saunas by the lake or the sea, and so much more. Winter activities come in the form of snowmobile, dog sledge and reindeer safaris, winter driving academies, snow karting, ice breaker cruises and more. In wintertime buildings crafted from snow and ice are great for hosting dinners and get-togethers – or even spending the night, if feeling adventurous.

In Lapland you can experience the Polar Night in wintertime and the Midnight Sun in summertime. Southwest Finland has the most beautiful archipelago in the world. We have snow and ice, the Northern Lights and thousands of pristine lakes, rivers and brooks with drinkable water. Thus, it really comes up to what one wishes to experience while in Finland: the winter wonderland or a serene summer haven.

 

In Finland you can truly satisfy the explorer within you. Would you like to step ashore on your own island? Thousands of waterways will give you plenty of options for activities. Rafting in rivers, canoeing in lakes, sailing by the sea are only few of the options. Speeding on board of a RIB will fulfil the dreams of petrol heads. Learning to sail with the fleet of old schooners is unforgettable experience.

Would you like to enter a true winter wonderland? Enjoy snowshoe-walking, kick sledding or skiing. Encounterings with husky dogs and reindeer will make you smile. For the adrenaline driven there is plenty of wonderful driving experiences with snowmobiles, winter rally, snow or ice karting. If you are lucky, you can also witness one of the greatest natural phenomenon: northern lights.

Nature is always near in Finland. It provides a dramatic setting with plenty of opportunities for all kinds of adventures and experiences. You can enjoy soothing nordic walking and berry picking or go wild with quad bikes. Team building exercises during summertime can continue until morning hours with the endless white nights.

The compact size of Finnish cities makes it easy to explore them on foot. City adventure can also be experienced with bikes or kick bikes. Tours connected with design, arts and history will provide food for thought. Culinary experiences can include cooking classes and tastings in breweries or distilleries. Great day can have a WOW ending with a live concert.
