Finland Travel Specialist

Your own imagination and adventurous spirit are the only limits to your summer visit to Finland where, between May and August, the sun barely sets. Pristine mountain environments, wild forests and idyllic landscapes of rolling hills are protected by some of Europe’s largest conservation areas, traversed by hiking routes and flawlessly untouched by mass tourism. Finland is large, sparsely populated and home to both stunning Arctic landscapes in the north, thousands of tiny islands in the south, and vast forests dotted with countless crystal-clear lakes in between.

The clear light of long summer days discourages sleep in favour of filling holiday time with activities and outdoor pursuits, including hiking, fishing, canoeing and biking. Up north, wild taiga forests are home to some of Europe’s last brown bears, and subtle wildlife hides make for a fantastic overnight experience; as you settle in for the evening, the bears move through the dusk and forage nearby.

In the winter, Finnish Lapland, drenched in snow and renowned as the home of Father Christmas himself, is transformed into a glittering frozen wilderness primed for arctic adventure, from husky sledding to snowmobiling. Here nights are spent watching the northern lights from the comfort of a private igloo with a glass roof, or wooden treehouse with a panoramic glass wall overlooking the snowy fells. Click here to explore our full range of Lapland holidays.

Paula Martin
Between November and March, frozen Finland is nothing short of spectacular. With glistening snow coating every surface and the northern lights dominating the night skies, Finland initially draws first-time visitors during the winter. However, summer in Finland is actually my favourite time to visit. North of the Arctic Circle, the midnight sun illuminates the wilderness for 24 hours a day, meaning that there’s even more time to try fishing, golfing, hiking and cycling, and the beautiful lakes and forest scenery can be admired even at night. Towards the end of the midnight sun season, ‘golden hour’ is prolonged for much of the evening, making it a photographer’s haven.

Paula's Tips
1
Spend a night in a wildlife hide to watch brown bears, which live, play and forage in the pine forests by the Russia border.
2
No trip is complete without a sauna experience with a refreshing lake dip. It's an essential part of Finnish life!
3
Transparent-fronted glamping domes overlook lakeside scenery illuminated for 24 hours by the midnight sun.
