Finland: the land of midnight sun, midsummer traditions and during the winter… a lot of snow. Our dear home country. The safest place on the planet, mostly. We have four seasons: beautiful summers, cold winters and then lovely short periods of warm springs and colourful autumns in between. We have free healthcare and education and we created Angry Birds.

Finland might not be considered the most exciting destination in the world, but it should definitely be a little bit higher on everyone’s travel goal bucket list. We don’t write a lot about it, but we’re definitely working on changing that. After all, there’s quite a lot of magical stuff to see and do here!
