Scandinavia - Finland (Chapter)
This is the Finland chapter from Lonely Planet's Scandinavia guidebook.
There's something pure in the Finnish air and a spirit that's incredibly vital and exciting. It's an invitation to get out and active year-round. Large parts of Finland remain gloriously remote; trendsetting modern Helsinki is counterbalanced by vast forested wildernesses elsewhere.
