OUR TOP DESTINATIONS

The sun never quite sets in Finland in summer time but it also never quite rises during the winter in this scenic country of lakes, islands, forests, pristine wilderness and super-modern technology. This is because Finland extends well into the Arctic Circle.

This land of contrasts is full of plenty to delight, amuse, inform and enchant the visitor, from its forbidding castles and onion-domed Slavic churches to the reindeer herds of the indigenous Sami people in Lapland in the north. The lively, modern capital city of Helsinki is packed with galleries, museums and cafés, but beyond, in the countryside, there are miles of pristine wilderness to explore in the rare clean, clear air. Around 65 per cent of the country is covered in forest and there are almost 40 national parks.

You can come in from the cold to a sauna, as Finland invented them. In fact, the country has an unbelievable estimate of two million saunas, so you'll be hard-pressed to avoid them.

From the pulsating cultural scene in the capital of Helsinki to the striking natural beauty of the jagged and icy countryside, Finland remains one of the more unexplored places in Europe. While the cities and towns offer many unique cultural and historical attractions, the natural surroundings serve as a playground for both winter and summer activities.

Helsinki is the main point of entry for most visitors to Finland. This is where sightseers will find the country's finest museums, art galleries, restaurants, and shopping. It's easy to spend a week exploring the city and enjoying the cultural attractions. Some of the most important sights in the city include Finlandia Hall, the architecture around Senate Square, Suomenlinna, and the underground Rock Church.

Those with an interest in history or art will also want to allow some time to wander through the Finnish Nationa
