There are few countries in Europe that scream road trip as loudly as Finland, a 16 hour drive tip to tip and a 560 mile long coast road are amongst the attractions on offer. Head to Lapland if you want to explore some truly stunning National Parks such as Riisitunturi, see the Northern Lights, or pay a visit to Santa’s village at Rovaniemi.
If you’re after lakes, then central Lakeland has tens of thousands to keep you busy. If you want to get on the water, take a cruise or hire a canoe and explore to your heart’s content. If you feel like a swim, the water is extremely clean and fairly shallow – the average depth is 7 metres!
Helsinki is a laid back city with endless appeal. Easily explored on foot, there are some great parks to stroll through before taking in the Art Nouveau architecture said to have inspired Batman’s Gotham City. Pop up restaurants reflect the ever changing trends in food and cuisine and offer great dining experiences. If the city gets too much for you, simply escape to one of the islands for some peace and quiet.
