From pristine forests, glistening lakes and the Midnight Sun to hip cities, fascinating festivals and delicious local cuisine, a hotel break in Finland is a feast for the senses.
Famous for its stunning nature, Finland offers a true paradise for fans of the Great Outdoors. There are countless opportunities to enjoy active hotel breaks in Finland’s pristine wilderness, from hiking adventures in the many National Parks to kayaking or swimming in one of the thousands of crystal-clear lakes in the summer, and dog-sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. Beautiful Lapland is the perfect place to marvel at the Midnight Sun or the magical aurora borealis (Northern Lights), and get to know the culture of the Sámi, the European Union’s only indigenous people. Another attraction is the delicious Finnish cuisine, which includes everything from reindeer meat, wild salmon and cloudberries to Karelian pies, wholemeal breads and fresh seafood. And with an average of one sauna per household in Finland, no hotel stay here would be complete without a visit to an authentic wood stove sauna! There are also plenty of exciting urban hotel destinations in Finland; the capital, Helsinki, is situated on the Baltic coast and features delightful art nouveau architecture and many excellent museums and galleries, as well as a vibrant artistic scene and a host of hip cafés and quirky bars. Meanwhile, the medieval university town of Turku, the oldest city in Finland, offers beautiful cobbled streets, a picturesque castle, fantastic nightlife and year-round cultural events.
