Hei and welcome to Finland! Of the three Scandinavian destinations in northern Europe, Finland is one of the most popular. Actually, there are lots of arguments in favour of this little country covered with lakes and forests, that is also well known for its racing drivers and its writers: Arto Paasilinna, for example. From Helsinki, the delightful capital, to the arctic latitudes of Lapland, through Rovaniemi (the town of Santa Claus!), the Suomi country is an invitation to exploration, adventureand nature in all its majesty.
Whether it is in winter, to see the aurora borealis and taking a dog sled, or in summer for long treks in the sun at midnight, rewarded by a superb sauna session, all the seasons allow you to discover a new facet of this destination.
In addition, if you are looking for a getaway, the pleasure of walking (on foot or on snowshoes!) or simply an excursion for several days into a different and preserved culture, do not hesitate: Suomessa on sinua varten!See more
Our agent, Edvinas, gave us guidance and we appreciated his knowledge about our destination. We liked the hotels he booked, it was always in the perfect spot. His suggestions, for example, the Opera in Copenhagen, was wonderful! The private tour guide was great. It was so well planned! We enjoyed the train trip to Sweden! Our guide Thomas in Stockholm was the best. We enjoyed 2 days with him. He was amazing, taking us to places that other tourists does not see. Example was the small gardens kept by the Swedes in the city. We did not feel like tourists, he made us feel like locals. Edvinas once again knew what we wanted! Our Viking overnight trip to Finland was excellent. We were very surprised that we absolutely loved the experience. It was so good to swatch all the islands pass by us, from the balcony of our cabin and from the dining room while having a delicious dinner! So many highlights on this trip. It is difficult to list all of them. One of our highlights was Rikka the tour guide in Helsinki. The best of this trip was our time with Mina in her B&B. She is the perfect hostess. Strandhagen is almost a spiritual experience. The stillness of the forest all arround us, the beauty, the bird-hide, the washing on the line. The bedding, the decor in the house. The gentle and compassionate owners. To top it all, Mina is a great cook!!See more
The cabin was perfect, modern, really well equipped, great location, good size and cozy. The safaris we booked were amazing. Our guide for the polar safari (Jenni) was particularly impressive, warm, helpful, extremely well informed and really professional. We did everything we'd hoped to do and much more because our cabin was in such a wonderful position with the forest, ski slopes, hotel, swimming pools and bus stop right on our doorstep. Everywhere we went we were treated to a lovely warm welcome and people were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us.See more
