Finland Holidays

down arrow Scroll to content

A fairy-tale realm for flora, fauna and folklore, Finland’s 22 billion trees make it one of the most densely forested places on Earth. Breathe green air on hikes, forage from nature’s bountiful larder and sled, ski or snowshoe through a frozen wonderland where only the whispers of swaying boughs can be heard.

Firm believers in ‘jokamiehenoikeus’ – a freedom to roam – Finns treat the outdoors like their own front room. Multiple walking trails wind around silver-streaked tree trunks veiled by lichen, leading to swimmable, pristine lakes and secluded hides set up for the viewing of wolverines and brown bears.

Here, the seasons are crisply distinct. In autumn – or ‘ruska’ – treetops blaze russet and auburn, mosses smoulder like embers, and dining tables are piled high with mushrooms and berries. And as dark nights take their grip, landscapes glow brilliant white, while reliably cloud-free skies dance with swirls of northern lights.

Even in easy-going capital city Helsinki, art and design is shaped by the wilderness and a thriving sauna culture provides an opportunity to connect with people and place. Inhale the scent of burning wood, relax muscles in soothing heat and share in storytelling sessions as never-ending as those stretches of pine, beech and fir.

Helsinki City Breaks

Finland’s elegant capital is bursting with culture. Like other Scandinavian cities it thrives around the clock, offering countless possibilities for sightseers and bon vivants alike. By day admire Helsinki’s grand classical architecture or shop in the world-famous design district. By night visit the opera or sample some of capital’s numerous bars and bustling night cafes. No trip to Helsinki would be complete without a relaxing proper Finnish sauna, followed by a cold Lapin Kulta beer.  

View To The Valley And Sky

Glass Igloos & Domes

Igloo villages are scattered throughout the north of the country. With entire roofs made of heated glass, lucky guests can watch bright green shimmering ribbons from the comfort of their very own bed.
