Finland – land of a thousand lakes

Finland, the land of lakes (more than 188,000 to be semi-precise, and countless mosquitos that also come with the package), is a country located in the northernmost region of Europe, bordered by Sweden, Norway, and Russia. The Finnish people have a deep connection to nature and a strong sense of community, which is reflected in their unique cultural traditions, such as saunas and Midsummer celebrations. And let’s not forget about Finland’s claim to fame as the home of Santa Claus. If you’re looking for a nature-filled vacation with a side of cozy cultural traditions, Finland might just be the place for you.
