One of the most fascinating things about Finland is its unique natural light phenomena, endless daylight in summer and the stunning Northern lights in winter.
Blessed with landscapes of staggering natural beauty, Finland offers a wealth of experiences that span these contrasting seasons.
In winter, you can learn ancient wilderness survival skills mastered by the indigenous Sami for thousands of years – build quinzees, make fires, ice-fish and meet reindeer. Travel by snowshoe or skis across virgin snow to explore frozen forests before resting in cosy, remote wooden cabins.
And whatever the season, in Finland there is always a sauna to enjoy at the end of the day.
