    Finland

    Major Tourist Attractions: Suomenlinna, Korkeasaari, PowerPark, Hartwall Areena, Moomin World

    Whether you are looking to travel in the winter or Summer Finland has plenty of history and nature activities.

    Finland is a country often overlooked by first time travelers to Europe, but this Nordic country has plenty of sites, history and nature activities, which can be equally interesting in winter and summer.

    The adventurous traveler can visit the northern region of Lapland to see the famed Northern Lights. The warm weather seeker should visit in the peak of summer to experience the white nights when the sun hardly sets. In contrast to the rest of the Nordic countries, Finland is more integrated into the European Union and even uses the euro as their currency, making travel between the rest of Europe completely seamless.

    The Finnish are probably most well known for their sauna culture. In fact, the word sauna originates as a Finnish word and the typical dry wood sauna used across the globe even comes from Finland. It’s said that nearly half of the population of Finland has a sauna in their own home and they make use of it frequently. One popular activity in the winter is to take a dip into the freezing sea and then head back into the sauna to warm up.

    Lodging in Finland is diverse and can range from dorm rooms and camping to luxury or ice hotels. Room rates are generally more than mainland Europe as prices of goods and services tend to be higher in the Nordic countries.

    Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Finland:

    • Go dog sledding.
    • See the famous Northern Lights from October through March.
    • Stay in an ice hotel.
    • Go ice fishing.
    • Visit the autonomous Aland Islands to see where Swedish and Finnish culture mix.
    • Take a Baltic cruise from Helsinki or Turku.
    • Experience the foodie culture in Helsinki.
    • Visit the official home town of Santa Claus in Rovaniemi.
    • Check out a traditional Finnish smoke sauna and go nude like the locals.
    • Eat reindeer.
    • Immerse yourself in Finnish design in Helsinki, voted the design capital of the world in 2012.
    • Go snowmobiling.
    • Experience the 24 hour sunshine in Lapland during the summer solstice.
