Helsinki - Finland’s capital, Helsinki, is one of the country’s most popular tourist spots, and for good reason. It mixes Byzantine and contemporary architecture to create a melting pot of culture that is certainly unmissable if you’re visiting Finland. A creative hub for design and art, there’s plenty of museums and galleries in this area, perfect for a rainy day. Helsinki is also great for local, sustainably sourced food to tantalise your tastebuds. If you’re a meat eater, be sure to try Finland’s range of unusual meats such as bear and reindeer!
Hanko - Finland’s beach resort, Hanko, is perfect for families who want to try Finland in the summer! Along a long, sandy peninsula, Hanko used to be a Russian spa town, offering a range of treatments. There is also a great nightlife vibe in this town in the summer, with many young people flocking to enjoy the beach parties! Make sure to enjoy a meal in one of Hanko’s many incredible restaurants, perhaps a locally sourced fish dish, straight from the water onto your plate!
Tampere - Although this town was a pioneer for Finnish industrialism, Tampere has managed to keep its charming and friendly atmosphere. Its neighbouring town, Nokia, was the birthplace of the company (you guessed it!) Nokia. Located in a scenic spot between the two lakes of Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi, enjoy the waters by taking a rowboat out and exploring both. Be sure to visit one of the public saunas by the lakeside!
Lapland - Home to the Santa Claus Village, Lapland is as close as you can get to a magic fairytale in real life. One of the largest regions in Finland, you’d be a fool not to visit here! Lapland describes itself in three figures: 190 000 reindeers, 749 fells, and 1 Santa Claus. Full of ski resorts and modernised towns, there is something for everyone in this beautifully snowy region. Lapland is also one of the best spots in the world to witness the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and there are many hotels with glass panellings in the ceilings, or glass igloos where you can watch from the comfort of a warm and comfortable bed. A must visit for any couples looking for a romantic and unforgettable experience.
Travel Risks in Finland
Finland is regarded as one of the safest countries in the world, with crime rates substantially lower than in places like Barcelona and Paris. Pickpocketing is still common in built up and touristy areas, so make sure you keep your phone and wallet in your front pocket, and your belongings in sight at all times.
There is also a low risk of natural disasters in Finland, but please be vigilant when participating in snow related activities, as there is always a risk of injury or avalanche. Make sure you have the correct cover before travelling.
