Finland is one of the world's most magical countries, and is thoroughly steeped in legend. You can visit Santa Claus in Lapland or see the fox that lights up the sky with its tail as you experience the wonder of the aurora borealis. Don't forget: Finland is the land of the midnight sun, a thoroughly unusual spectacle to behold. Undoubtedly, Finland has some breathtaking scenery; you could visit one of the 188,000 crystal clear lakes or go on a ramble through the forests and Arctic fells, home to thousands of species of wild animals, including wolves, bears, golden eagles, moose, reindeer and birds.
You could visit the bustling capital of Helsinki with its museums, art galleries and theatres, or picturesque towns like Tampere, noted for its festivals, sports teams and the Särkänniemi amusement park. In the south-west of Finland is Turku, the country's oldest town. You can visit the market, the castle or the cathedral, as well as a glass roofed shopping centre. Close to Turku, there is also the Archipelago National Park, perfect for those who enjoy sailing or other outdoor pursuits like kayaking and fishing. It's also a great place to see seals, terns and sea geese. If you're looking for a different kind of adventure you could try the ski routes, perfect for skiers and snowboarders, no matter your skill level, or perhaps a husky or reindeer ride and ice fishing would be more to your liking. After a day of activity and fun, there's always time left for a sauna.
For Finnish people, having a sauna is part of their culture and heritage. It's central to life in Finland and is an activity shared with family and friends, or a place to retreat after a business meeting with colleagues to continue discussions. There are more than two million saunas in Finland, so why not discover a new way to relax and steam your cares away? A sauna is an invigorating bonding experience that cleanses both your body and mind and, afterwards, you can take a refreshing dip in icy water or roll in the snow to get your blood pumping and release built-up adrenaline.
In recent years, there's been a culinary revolution in Finland which has brought a fresh burst of delight to the dining experience, as several new restaurants and eateries have established their presence. The staple foods of Finland are potatoes, bread and of course seafood. Some of the most popular dishes include muikku, fried fish with mashed potatoes; savulohi, smoked salmon and meat dishes made from reindeer and makkara, a traditional Finnish sausage.
Finnish restaurants often specialise in Russian and Scandinavian food but there are some Asian and European inspired restaurants, as well as pubs and cafes that serve dishes with ingredients sourced from local areas. If you're hoping to experience some of the nightlife Finland has to offer, you'll find something to suit your taste. You can enjoy one of the many beer gardens, trendy bars and lounges or dance clubs in many of the major towns and cities.
