Finland - The Lakeland (Chapter)
This is the The Lakeland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guidebook.
Most of Finland could be dubbed lakeland, but around here it seems there’s more water than land. And what water: sublime, sparkling, and clean. Reflecting sky and forests as clearly as a mirror, it leaves an indelible impression.
