Finland is a place of stark contrast, of urban and rural areas each offering something entirely different to your trip away. Make your way through its pristine towns and cities, places where the comforts of modern life are never too far away before heading to spectacular natural settings adorned with effervescent waterfalls and magical forests. Take a break away to the beautiful capital city of Helsinki, where you can discover its lively night scene and sample the delights of the iconic Ice Bar or experience somewhere a little quieter.
Whether you’re looking for northern adventures or a quirky city break, you’ll find some great places to discover on your holidays to Finland.
Finland holidays in the summer reveal you to some fantastic wildlife. Brown bears, wolves, moose and reindeer can all be seen from a distance with an experienced local guide, offering some great opportunities for budding wildlife photographers. If you’re looking to venture further afield, head to the Oulanka National Park to see reindeer and elk, as well as the many other mammals that populate this wilderness.
If you’ve got little ones with you, you’ll love the magical feel of holidays in Finland. Snowmobiles, packs of huskies meandering through the snow and visits to Santa Claus are all part and parcel of a winter in Finland – creating a myriad of Christmas picture-postcard memories.
