What to do in Finland
Finland is a Nordic European country that perfectly blends modern cities with vast areas of untouched nature. Despite being one of the most technologically developed countries in the world, Finland is also known as the home of great myths and the relaxed lifestyle of the Finns.
Stop by the Daughter of the Baltic and fly to Helsinki. Ride a ferry and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Suomenlinna sea fortress. Take in the sights and the fresh air at the Seurasaari open-air museum. Have your jaw drop at the gorgeous Temppeliaukio Church, the Ateneum, and the Sibelius Monument.
Stroll around the picturesque wooden houses of Porvoo. Feel the myths and legends come alive in Savonlinna’s Olavinlinna Castle and the oldest castle in Finland at Hameenlinna Castle.
Be tempted to sing Frozen’s famous chart-topper when you see the world’s biggest snow castle in Kemi. Want even more magic? Have a go and ride the historical Linnanmaki wooden rollercoaster, where only gravity keeps it on the track.
Be sure to stop by the UNESCO World Heritage Site Rauma, and Rovaniemi, which is the home of Santa Claus Village. And visit the country’s best national parks too at Koli National Park, Lemmenjoki National Park, and Nuuksio National Park.

Don’t miss Finland’s exciting music festivals too like the Sauna Open Air, Pori Jazz, and Flow. Of course, the event you absolutely should see at least once in your light is spotting the Northern Lights in the sky because Finland is one of the best places in the world to see it.
