Finland, located on northern Europe's Scandinavian Peninsula, is bordered by Sweden, Russia and Norway, with Estonia to the south across the Gulf of Finland. A memorable country, Finland is rich with intriguing contrasts and a strong sense of self. Its modern, trendsetting capital of Helsinki is counterbalanced not only by quaint villages where cultural traditions remain strong, but also vast remote forests in the north and east.
Winter sports are king in Finland, and just about every type of winter outdoor activity is available, including skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding and catching sight of a magnificent aurora borealis during a trek through the wilderness. Indoor activities abound as well, and Finnish towns feature quaint churches, quirky museums, warm cafes and a vibrant nightlife, especially in Helsinki.
Finland is an inspirational, dynamic country, a country filled with dreams. A country blessed with natural beauty and a fiercely independent but welcoming people.

Helsinki, located on the picturesque Finnish coast, is the quintessential maritime city. Stylish and chic, much of Helsinki's quirky charm stems from the way it dares to be different. The city has a very different feel than the rest of Finland, with Art Nouveau buildings, elegant cafes and restaurants, and dozens of museums that preserve Finnish culture and traditions. Suomenlinna (the "Fortress of Finland"), only a short ferry ride from Helsinki, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular day trip from the city.
South-eastern Finland is a romantic region of lakes, rivers, locks and canals, with more water than land. It's a popular spot for canoeing during the Finnish summer, but it also features Savonlinna, with one of Europe's most dramatic castles and a world-famous Opera Festival. Lapland, Finland's wilderness above the Arctic Circle is a land of continuous daylight in the summer and never-ending nights in the winter. The clear Arctic air of the region offers the chance to see the unforgettable aurora borealis, but visitors can also ski, witness reindeer races, go ice-fishing or mush a dog team. Lapland's Lemmenjoki National Park, Finland's largest, offers wilderness, rivers, and glimpses of gold-panning to travellers on holidays to Finland. Oulanka National Park features the rugged Karhunkierros Trail (Bear’s Ring), a spectacular trek through cliffs, gorges and suspension bridges.
