Finland as travel destination

Finland is a country full of extremes with four beautiful seasons and four distinct regions that include the Helsinki capital region, Lapland, Lakeland and the Archipelago. Finland is a year-round destination where you can enjoy anything from a weekend citybreak to a longer stay in a ski resort or a cozy cottage. The things that make Finland special are closely related to nature and well-being. There is also a great, up-and-coming urban scene that beats to a drum of its own.
