Finland tailor-made holidays
Finland is a quiet, laid-back place made up of vast expanses of forests and lakes dotted with small towns. It's also the home of Santa Claus and all the family fun that goes with it.
Helsinki, the chic capital, is the place to see Finnish design, take advantage of excellent shopping and enjoy a lively nightlife. Turku, located at the mouth of the Aura River on the south coast is an historic centre and the gateway to a stunning archipelago that stretches into the Baltic Sea. Tampere in the beautiful western Lake District is a popular start point for sailing, salmon fishing and skating; it's also home to the only Lenin museum in the world.
However, people come to experience the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis that play across the Arctic sky. Discover a world of exciting experiences in the fresh, clean Lapland countryside, where activities include skiing, snowmobiling, reindeer or husky safaris and ice golf; a tot of vodka and a proper sauna provide everything you need for total relaxation.
