7 Best Experiences to add to your travel list during a Finland trip

If you are planning a trip to Finland and need some advice, this article is made just for you!

We’ll suggest to you the 7 best experiences during your Finland trip

The first thing to do is decide whether to book your holiday in winter or summer. In Finland, these two seasons are opposite poles, in the sense that winter is characterized by profound darkness,

while summer is characterized by the absence of darkness.

Once this is done you will have to decide where exactly to spend your holiday as Finland is a very large country and therefore it would be better to visit only one of the four main regions:

the Helsinki region, the lakes region, Lapland, and the archipelago.

In this article, we recommend that you visit Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland in the north of Finland.

Rovaniemi offers a multitude of experiences for all tastes and is mainly nature-oriented. Given the beauty of the Lappish landscape,

full of green forests, spectacular lakes here you can take a swim in the frozen sea that seems almost black in contrast to the white snow around!

Lapland is undoubtedly a place with breathtaking and surreal scenery, characterized by the magic of the northern lights and the everlasting sun in summer.

Whether you are an adventurous spirit or simply a curious traveler, we offer you a series of experiences that you can do either alone or in the company of your family.
