Finland Excursions

Popular Tourist Circuits of Finland

Capital Helsinki is a southern port city, dressed with imposing Art Noveau architecture and a spacious, sea-focused elegance. If its hoary wilds you’re after, head for AKK National Park, where you can discover the wildernesses of Lapland on a sled pulled by dogs, heading into the heart of one of Europe’s most deserted areas. Climb to Kilpisjarvi, where Finland meets Norway and Sweden, or head east and explore Isomantsi, where aboriginal Karelians live among supposedly continuous wilds. The areas near Kuusamo are an outstanding place to eye the haunting lights of the Aurora Borealis, the world’s natural northern light show.
