Finland is a little hidden gem located far up North. Small in size, but big in things to discover.
If you crave the outdoors, you will feel right at home trekking any of the 40 Finnish national parks. One breath of that crisp Finnish air is all you need to replenish your body and revitalize your soul. Mother Nature dictates life in this Nordic land, where winter brings perpetual darkness, and summer, perpetual light. Crystal clear streams run through vast forests lighted by the midnight sun, and reindeer roam free.
The thrill of witnessing the Aurora Borealis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many. The Northern Lights are visible on roughly 200 nights a year – or every other clear night – in Finnish Lapland. Catching the magical phenomenon requires clear and dark skies and a viewing spot not affected by light pollution, like street lights and neon signs.
Fun fact: Doze off under the Northern Lights. In Finland, nature’s most spectacular light show, the Aurora Borealis, can be viewed in a range of purpose-built spaces from glass igloos to luxury suites.
