Why We Love Finland

Flag of Finland

There are many reasons to visit Finland but some of these reasons are more special than others. Take a look at what keeps this unique country on the Baltic Sea so close to our hearts.

More than 70% of the Finnish landscape is forest, which makes the country a stunning spot for ramblers and nature lovers. You’ll also find 188,000 lakes nestled in between the woodland, which only add to the astounding natural beauty of Finland.

Nowhere can match Finland’s natural bounty

Want to lace up your boots and explore? That’s no problem. The Finns take their beautiful landscape very seriously and want to share it with everyone. You can be assured of your right to roam as you take in this beautiful scenery.

A visit to Finland is great for your health

Finland is renowned for having some of the cleanest air anywhere in the world, even downtown in the capital, Helsinki. Getting a good level of exercise is also easy here thanks to the myriad ski-slopes dotted around the country, as well as the hiking trails which criss-cross the landscape.

Want to relax in a healthy way after a day on the slopes? A diverse array of different cuisine awaits you on the award-winning Finnish restaurant scene, while one of the over three million saunas will help you to open your pores and detox the Nordic way.

Finland in the winter is a truly magical place

Have you ever been to the home of Santa Claus in Rovaniemi? Have you ever seen the Northern Lights or stay in Glass Igloos? Have you ever taken a sled trip through the snow and seen reindeer trotting among the pines? Visit Finland and ensure the answer to all of these questions is ‘yes.’

The Finnish people are waiting to welcome you

Finns are very proud of their culture, and rightly so! As such, they are happy to share it with you. A major reason to visit Finland is the Finns themselves. You will feel the warmth and welcoming nature of the local people from the moment you arrive.

This also manifests itself in the society of Finland, which is one of the safest on the planet. While many charming locations across the world are unfortunately blighted by crime, Finland is not one of them.

Arts and culture are thriving

Finland has long been famous for its art and design scene. The Kiasma, the Finnish National Gallery, and the Espoo Museum of Modern Art all house world-class collections that will delight visiting experts and casual art lovers in equal measure, while the Midnight Sun Film Festival in Sodankylä is an experience which can’t be missed.
