Finland

Helsinki – Kuopio (Land of a Thousand Lakes) - Kuopio – Rovaniemi (Lapland & Santa's Lap) - Rovaniemi

About Destination

Enfolded by Norway, Sweden and Russia, Finland is one of the world’s northernmost countries.

Also known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, Finland is covered mostly in water, and in fact boasts an astounding 188,000 lakes – many of them vast – and 179,000 islands scattered about the entire stretch of the country.

In Finland, travelers can experience a myriad of attractions and activities, enriched by none other than the country’s history and culture. From the world renowned sauna to shopping and culinary escapades – both traditional country fare and haute-cuisine – and exciting adventures through the magical nature, Finland has something to offer for every traveler. Helsinki, Finland’s capital, is a brilliant illustration of how empire and art nouveau style meets modern design.

Named as the World Design Capital in 2012, Helsinki is the base from which Finnish design – characterized by minimalism and clean lines – has flourished over the years. From Helsinki to the north, there are a myriad of activities that travelers can enjoy. In the southern town of Porvoo, the second-oldest in Finland, travelers can walk along the river lined with medieval brick-red warehouses, or through the town’s small historic streets lined with craft shops and interior design stores, stopping at one of the cafes known throughout southern Finland for its sweets and pastries.
