Finland: Holidays and Adventures

Enjoy scenic beauty when you travel to Finland for Holidays you'll treasure forever

Bordered by Sweden, Norway and Russia, Finland is the eighth largest country in Europe and an extremely popular destination for activity holidays. At 5.4 million, Finland’s population is similar to that of Scotland, though the country covers an area over 100,000 miles greater than its UK counterpart.

Historically, Finland has belonged to both Sweden and Russia before declaring itself an independent republic in the early 20th century.

In terms of its geography, Finland is a flat country with few hills and mountains. Its highest point is in the extreme north, an area of Finnish Lapland. What the country lacks in peaks, however, it more than makes up in water. Finland is home to well over 150,000 lakes and a similar number of islands. The country, in fact, has its own lakeland area in the south west and its largest lake – Saimaa - is the fourth largest in Europe.

Many people travel to Finland for Holidays in the winter and the majority of these breaks are based in Lapland – the northern part of the country and home to the Sami people.
