When you picture a vacation in Finland, what does your imagination conjure up? Do you think of frosted trees, snowy landscapes, and starry night skies? Winter is a lovely time to visit this spectacular country, but come summer when the weather thaws and the flowers bloom, Finland transforms into something else altogether.
Located in northern Europe and bordering Sweden, Norway and Russia, this country is home to Lapland, some of the planet’s most-mindblowing nature and of course, the midnight sun. Finland is among the few places in the world where this astronomical occurrence takes place, as a quarter of the country lies north of the Arctic Circle. It’s one of the best reasons to visit Finland in the summer, imagine exploring Finland’s exciting cities and attractions below a sun that never sets!
Join John as he begins his journey in the capital of Helsinki. This city is known for its remarkable architectural designs, beautiful islands, and delicious food. From Helsinki, you can hop onboard an overnight sleeper train to Rovaniemi, which is where Santa Claus lives!
Located in the Arctic Circle, along with exploring the hometown of Christmas’ poster boy, you can see reindeer in the wild and the official markings of the Arctic Circle. The beautiful forested nature areas of this region aren’t bad on the eyes either. You can even go foraging for a supper of fresh salmon and wild blueberries. The best thing about this part of Finland? You will meet the cutest Siberian Husky puppies and experience a moose safari.
Saariselkä, a resort village in northern Finland, is the perfect spot to see the midnight sun in all its glory. Watch as it barely touches the horizon before rising again. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Your journey will come to an end in Turku, by sampling local delicacies, sailing around the archipelago ad discovering some fascinating history. It’s the perfect way to say farewell. Join John on his summer adventure to Finland or better yet, head over to TourRadar and book your own!
