Any Finnish travel experience will be largely determined by the seasons which, in Finland, are literally as different as night and day. Winter is a time of perpetual darkness, magnificent frozen lakes and the glorious Northern Lights blazing across the endlessly dark night sky. In summer the snow melts to reveal vast green natural landscapes bathed in the light of the remarkable midnight sun. Mile upon mile of virtually untouched natural wilderness provides a playground for trekkers, mountain-bikers, skiers and fishermen. It is a place where reindeer roam free when they aren’t pulling sleds or being served up on the dinner table! This natural wonderland exists on the doorstep of phenomenally innovative modern cities offering their fill of cosmopolitan living while the surrounding smaller towns are home to quaint wooden churches, historical castles and quirky museums brimming with fascinating cultural artifacts. With all of this and more on offer, a trip to enigmatic Finland makes for sometimes fascinating, often bewildering, but always invigorating travel.
