Finland

The magic of Finland is something to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The mesmerizing northern lights dancing in the night sky, the picture-perfect winter wonderland landscape, and of course, the official hometown of Santa Claus welcoming both children in adults for an enchanting stay… All sights you don’t want to miss if you’re in the country!

But the natural beauties are not the only treasures to be found in Finland. Known for its unique architecture and design, its exceptional Nordic cuisine and its endless sea views, Helsinki is a capital that never ceases to amaze and delight its visitors. The city welcomes travelers with the traditional Finnish hospitality and initiates them to the modern local culture characterized by a greatly egalitarian society and a welcoming informality.

Whether you’re looking to book a trip to Finland in winter or summer, you’re sure to find a ton of activities both in the city and in nature to explore everything this great country has to offer. Read on to discover more about “the land of the thousand lakes”.
