About Finland


Finland (in Finnish: Suomi) is in Northern Europe and has borders with Russia to the east, Norway to the north, and Sweden to the west.

Finland has it all from the incredible scattering of islands in Europe's largest archipelago, to the hilly countryside of Lapland; the landscape of Finland is a pristine paradise for nature lovers. With midnight sun in the summer, and the ephemeral allure of the Aurora Borealis in the northern winter, Finland possesses a wealth of rare beauty, a truly distinctive ambience. 

Modern Finland combines the natural gifts bestowed upon the land with modern technologies allowing it to be easily discovered. Finland is a thoroughly modern welfare state with well-planned and comfortable small towns and cities, but still offers vast areas of unspoiled nature. 

Finland has approximately 188,000 lakes (about 10% of the country) and a similar number of islands. In the northernmost part of the country the Northern Lights can be seen in the winter and midnight sun in the summer. 

Today, Finland has a distinctive language and culture that sets it apart from the rest of Nordic Europe and most importantly Finland has the mythical mountain of Korvatunturi as the home of Santa Claus.

Finland is an ideal destination for travellers looking for something different; the rewards for Discovering Finland are endless. Read more…
