Your Destinations —
Helsinki, known as the Daughter of the Baltic, has a laid-back, small town pace while retaining the attractions and atmosphere of a big city. Next to the sea, the shore is an enticing tangle of shops, villages, bays and inlets. The water seems to braid naturally with the cityscape.
Visit the squares and cathedrals that make up the older aspects of this city, while remaining sure not to miss out on the legendary contemporary design scene. The city's gourmet side is also flourishing, with new gastro eateries offering locally sourced tasting menus popping up at dizzying speed. Discover this city's quirky charm during your stay and fall in love with the style of life that so many have fallen in love with during their visits.
Kemi is famous for being the Ice Capital of Finland. Home to the largest Snow Castle in the world (and one of your hotels!) Kemi is one of those villages that knows how to do winter right. Choose from a huge range of activities such as ice swimming or snowmobiling tours over the frozen sea. If you're lucky, you may get to experience the brilliant Northern Lights dance across the sky!
