Between the Baltic and Russia’s snowy north lays Finland, a nation whose heritage includes the swooping mid-century tulip chairs of Eero Saarinen and sweepingly snow-bound Lapland, where reindeer trot beneath the Northern Lights. Its compact size and happy combination of bustling, urbane city life in Helsinki and Icelandic-style northern wilds make it the ideal ‘best of both worlds’ destination, and one that’s suitable for the entire family.

There’s no better place to experience contemporary Finnish culture than in heady, cultured Helsinki, which also plays host to some of the country’s best and most luxurious hotels. Restaurants offering hearty Russian fare are scattered among posh Finnish delis offering rye, herring and reindeer, as well as a proper fine dining experience around the harbor-front food market, Hakaniemi. For architectural buffs, there is the mesmerising rock-cut, copper-domed church of Temppeliaukio, whose plans reach back to the 1930s. Oh, and the city is a hotbed for fans of heavy metal, if that’s your thing.

Top Locations in Finland

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Finland, we’d go for these.
Finnish fortress Suomenlinna, Helsinki

Helsinki

Finland’s electric capital.

The perfect location for sightseeing and an easy arrival from the airport, Helsinki is a no-brainer when traveling to Finland. Firstly, grab a coffee and wander through the colorful stalls of Market Square picking up countless foodie treats and handicrafts. Then, a day of culture awaits at the UNESCO-inscribed Suomenlinna fortress. Scattered across a cluster of six islands, it’s the perfect spot for a dose of history with bunkers, fortress walls and a WWII submarine to explore.

Luxury tours in Finnish Lapland

Finnish Lapland

Arctic wilderness, storybook towns, and a gracious canopy of stars.

No vacation to Finland is complete without an adventure into Finnish Lapland, where huskies, reindeer and the Northern Lights are the local currency throughout its startling, bright-white winter. It opens up a world of outdoor opportunities for families to embark on, whether that’s feeding Rudolph and his friends or meeting Father Christmas in his very own wokshop. We also recommend joining a husky team to watch the miles whisk by, whilst feeling at one with nature.

Finnish Lakeland

Finnish Lakeland

A summer dream of log cabins and wooden jetties.

Finland is home to over 188,000 lakes, with most of them located in none other than Finnish Lakeland. And here, it’s all about being outdoors and embracing summer – but it’s also perfect for a bout of relaxation too. Kickstart your day with an invigorating swim, and then immerse yourself in the surrounding countryside with hiking, canoeing, cycling, and fishing. Our Travel Experts have conjured up plenty of exciting opportunities fit for all the family.
