Introduction

Finland is the most sparsely populated country in the European Union, mostly covered with forest and packed with hundreds of thousands of lakes and islands!

Rovaniemi is the place to go to check out the Northern Lights, and you can go dog or reindeer sledding with the indigenous Sami people; and as well as cross country ski trails all over the north, there is downhill skiing at Saariselka and Levi.

The capital, Helsinki, has a reputation as a cool party city, and you can try local spirits such as cloudberry liqueur.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna sea fortress is a popular picnic spot during the long Summer days.

Our articles cover topics like how to visit Helsinki on a budget, festivals such as the Wife Carrying Championship and the heavy metal festival at the abandoned Tuska power station (now an art space), life amongst the Sami, and where to find the leeriest ice sculptures and craziest restaurants.
