Finland Mini Guide

Located in Northern Europe, Finland has land borders with Sweden in the west, Norway in the north and Russia in the east.  The tourist industry in Finland is mostly focused around winter sports and a large selection of some of the world’s best ski resorts can be found within its borders. An exception to this is the area known as Lapland, Finnish folk tales name the mountain of Korvatunturi is the home of Santa Claus, and a whole tourist industry has grown up around this myth. This makes Lapland a fairytale Christmas adventure for thousands of tourists each year.

Travel within Finland can be fairly expensive; in many ways it is most cost effective to hire a car for the duration of a visit. The roads in Finland are generally well kept, although they can become treacherous in some areas due to extreme weather conditions.

Eastern Finland is against the Russian border and features a landscape of lakes and forests. Major cities include Helsinki the capital, known as the Daughter of the Baltic. Located in central Finland, Jyvaskla is a large and affluent university town. Oulo is termed the technology city, and is located in the Gulf of Bothnia.
