Finland may be a long way from Hawaii but the surf's up in this Nordic country.
A tenth of Finland is made up of bodies of water and almost a third of the country’s population fishes in their free time. This may explain why the vast majority of the country’s 500,000 summer cottages have been built beside lakes and ponds.
Finland´s location in the crossroads of west and east provides a great opportunity for travellers to experience Finland en route to Europe. Our StopOver provides passengers time to explore Finland from 5 hours to 5 days.
Finland is home to great contrasts and extremes. And by this, we’re not only talking about the many faces of our seasons. In fact, Finnish people’s DNA is the most diverse in all of Europe.
Finns appreciate simplicity and honesty in all things. The same goes for our cooking; gimmicks and frills are simply not in our nature. Everything starts with clean ingredients, and less is usually more.
This epic winter expedition involved a select group of outdoor enthusiasts from around the world who spent three months in Finnish Lapland experiencing the wonders and challenges of winter.
One of the explorers was Sophie Nolan from the UK. See how she sums up her unforgettable experience in the northern wilderness.
