From the Northern Lights to the midnight sun, areas of vast wilderness to cutting-edge Scandi design, Finland is a land of extremes. Whether you’re seeking a winter wonderland or endless summer days, a luxury holiday to Finland promises pristine nature, action and adventure, fine dining, and some serious style.
Finland’s largely flat landscape is punctuated with forests that cover over 70% of the country, and a myriad of lakes, earning it the nickname The Land of a Thousand Lakes. Comprising 40 national parks, a rugged Baltic coastline and diverse wildlife, it’s an adventure playground for the active traveller.
In winter, the lakes of Finnish Lapland freeze over and pine trees are blanketed in snow. Now’s the time to indulge in the Finnish passion for saunas, spend the night in a glittering ice hotel, and watch the Northern Lights dance across the sky. Visitors can enjoy world-class cross-country skiing, hop on a snowmobile, or join a team of husky dogs or reindeer to fly through the snow.
Finland’s summers offer endless days where you can view the landscape through a different lens. Hike through forests, explore islands and lakes from a canoe or kayak, and dine al fresco next to a log cabin.
For all its rugged wilderness, Finland’s cities boast some serious cosmopolitan charm. The style-conscious capital, Helsinki, is famed for its modern architecture, superb Design District and fine dining experiences, where locally sourced ingredients grace the menus of Michelin-starred restaurants.
