Whether you’re interested in the capital city of Helsinki - with its thumping nightlife, Finnish cuisine, contemporary art scenes and extensive showcases of Finnish history - or the stunning icy landscapes of this Nordic country, a Finland package has something for everyone.
Christmas in Finland is an entire experience on its own, unlike any other around the world. It is believed that Finland is home to Santa Claus and that he lives in the northern region known as Lapland. In the capital city of Lapland, Rovaniemi, there is a Santa Claus Village which is a huge hit during Christmas in Finland, especially for tourists who visit during that time of year. The Arctic Circle runs through this amusement park, and Santa has his own office which you can visit him in. You can even pay Santa Claus’ Main Post Office in Rovaniemi a visit, and send a letter to a loved one from Santa himself! The post office is a part of the official Finnish postal services, and year-round, Christmas dressed elves run the place.
Speaking of Christmas in Finland, the Santa Claus Village also provides a stunning view of the Northern Lights for 150 nights every year, from the middle of August until the start of spring early in April. The Arctic Garden in the Village is the best spot to view this. Apart from Rovaniemi, the Northern Lights are visible anywhere in the northern region of Finland most clear nights. But in the south of Finland, it’s a little rare to catch a view of them, with the lights being visible only 10 to 20 nights a year.
There are some experiences in Finland that you probably won’t find in most other countries. For example, glass igloos are huge amongst tourists, and many hotels in Finland offer visitors the opportunity to stay in these overnight. Made entirely of glass, you can even view the Northern Lights as the night dawns and you’re tucked into bed! The glow they cast on the trees and snow all around makes the experience even more surreal than what is imaginable. In Kemi, there is an entire snow castle that is built anew every winter, and walking through the halls and rooms is a breathtaking experience. You can also go diving off an icebreaker, or you can let out some steam as you float around in a sauna boat that lazily meanders on one of Finland’s many lakes. Be sure to add some of these to your customised Finland package.
Finnish cuisine is full of surprises. The foods here are a mix of haute cuisine, contemporary continental style cooking, and traditional country recipes. Starting your day with a Finnish breakfast will be one of the highlights of each day of your Finland holiday. Porridge is a breakfast staple, as are open-faced sandwiches. The combo is served with a helping of berries and an assortment of cold cuts and cheeses.
Finnish people take their coffee very seriously and have raised Finland to be the number one coffee consumer in the world. Coffee is often served with a sandwich of a small dessert. Pulla is a must-try delicacy, which is a sweet, small bun. Its dessert form, laskiaispulla, is even richer, with a slight cream filling.
Apart from this, Finland’s dishes are rich with cheese, mushrooms, berries and milk. Salt liquorice ice cream, nokia kuuma koira, karelian pie and sauna sausage are a must-try as well. Their holidays see a lot of special items be prepared, like Easter eggs filled with chocolate almond-hazelnut nougat.
Getting around Finland is easy with the rail system which offers express trains that take you around the country. There are even international connections, with trains that take you to major Russian cities.
