Scandinavia - Finland (Chapter)
This is the Finland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Scandinavia guidebook.
There’s something pure in the Finnish air; it’s an invitation to get out and active year-round. A post-sauna dip in an ice hole under the aurora borealis isn’t a typical winter’s day just anywhere. And hiking under the midnight sun through pine forests isn’t your typical summer either.
- marvel at the shimmering lakescapes of handsome Savonlinna, and see a top-quality opera in its medieval castle
- cruise Lakeland waterways, gorge on tiny fish, and sweat it out in the huge smoke sauna at Kuopio
- cross the Arctic Circle, hit the awesome Arktikum museum, and visit Santa in his official grotto at Rovaniemi
- restaurants & accommodation
