When I came back home after spending only a week in Finland, I felt like I had been away for months. I came back relaxed, refreshed, filled with energy and stories about woods, lakes, and small wooden houses with a sauna. I saw everything at ground level, felt the earth under my feet and the water around my body when I went swimming in the lake. I didn’t know what those landscapes would look like from above. Thanks to this video, now I know.

Shot by photographer and filmographer Anders Lönnfeldt, it shows the country from the air: vast woods, lonely kayakers in the lakes, colorful fields… There’s a reason why all your friends who’ve been to Finland want to go back. After watching this video, you’ll start preparing your trip there.
