Finland Holidays

Fun in the snow - Visit Finland

Finland is a large, sparsely populated country that features barren Arctic landscapes in the North, thousands of tiny islands in the South, vast, unspoiled forests and countless, crystal clear lakes in between.  

Its a country for all seasons. Winter holidays in Finland feature downhill and cross country skiing, skating, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, husky sleds and much more. Of course there is mystery and attractions in the Arctic, such as the Northern Lights and Father Christmas. Days are spent enjoying the frosty climate, while evenings are for soothing saunas and crackling fires.

Summer holidays in Finland allow you to experience a wide range of activities. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy hiking through the endless forests and canoeing on the sparkling lakes. You can enjoy the wildlife on a bear watching trip or relax with a round of golf at a spa.

Summer brings a wide array of art and music festivals, some more traditional than others, like the Savonlinna Opera Festival or Pori Jazz Festival. There are some real quirky activities that take place during the summer as well, such as the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships, annual wife-carrying competition in Sonkajärvi and swamp football in Hyrynsalmi. After a long, dark winter, the Finns really look forward to the summer and create a very friendly and enjoyable atmosphere for all.
