Finland is a beautiful Nordic country known for its stunning natural landscapes, vibrant cities, and unique culture. It’s an excellent destination for travelers interested in outdoor activities, design, and the famous Finnish sauna. Here’s a simple guide to what you can expect when visiting Finland:

  • Turku: The oldest city in Finland, known for its medieval Turku Castle, the Turku Cathedral, and its lively cultural scene.
  • Tampere: A city surrounded by lakes, known for its industrial heritage and attractions like the Vapriikki Museum Centre and the Pyynikki Observation Tower.
  • Rovaniemi: The official hometown of Santa Claus, located on the Arctic Circle, offers unique Arctic experiences and winter activities.

Food and Drink

  • Karjalanpiirakka: Traditional Karelian pasties made with thin rye crust filled with rice porridge, often served with egg butter.
  • Ruisleipä: Finnish rye bread, a staple in Finnish cuisine.
  • Salmiakki: A type of salty licorice, popular as a snack.
  • Lohikeitto: A creamy salmon soup with potatoes and leeks.

Getting Around

  • Cycling: Many cities, including Helsinki, are bike-friendly, with bike lanes and rental services available.
  • Driving: Roads are well-maintained, and renting a car can be convenient for exploring the countryside and more remote areas.

Best Time to Visit

  • Summer: June to August is the best time to visit, with warm weather and long daylight hours (known as the Midnight Sun). Ideal for outdoor activities and festivals.
