Start with fabulous museums and inspiring architecture in the capital, Helsinki, before discovering the beauty of Finland’s sprawling national parks. Unearth an Arctic way of life in Lapland and search for the remarkable northern lights.
Far removed from the more frigid regions, Helsinki is a bustling haven of art and design. See the museums of the Kamppi dDistrict, along with superb structures, such as Temppeliaukio Church and the graceful Kamppi Chapel. Take a boat cruise around the bay to explore some of the more than 1050 islands.
From that modern metropolis, take a 5-hour drive northeast to the outer wilderness of Linnansaari National Park. Rent a kayak and spend days exploring serene Haukivesi Lake and its many islands. Camp in complete isolation with only seals and ospreys for company.
More adventures are waiting in the northern regions, particularly Lapland. Kemi at the far end of the Gulf of Bothnia features the world’s largest snow castle. Drop by to admire the frozen walls, doors and floors or stay a night in the icy hotel. The town itself is charming, with a deep-water harbor and a traditional icebreaker taking visitors out for rides.
The winter sports center of Saariselka, 155 miles (250 kilometers) north of the Arctic Circle, is a scenic place to end your trip. Get into the festive spirit with a reindeer ride and conclude your journey in style beneath the mesmerizing aurora borealis (northern lights).
Finland lies between Sweden to the west, Norway to the north and Russia to the east. Fly to the main international airport in Helsinki or Tampaere farther north and Turku to the west. Food generally involves steaming pasties and fried meats, with anything involving reindeer also popular.

Everything was to a very good standard except for the air conditioning. It seemed to be centrally controlled and very weak. Our room barely got below 27C the whole stay according to the thermostat.
The location was pleasant and the room was nice and clean at first, however the full cleaning is not done on a daily basis. I don't mind the towels not being changed everyday (it's actually good, in fact, for environment purposes...), but I find rather odd for a four star hotel that the beds are ...
Perfect location if you need access to the Conference Center. Not much else going on around there though.
Staff were not vigilant in a way to be expected - I had a delayed bag delivered and it took them 12 hrs to tell me1 By which time I had to buy new clothes.
Check-in is via email, so no reception. Works fine. Rooms are a good size with all the facilities you need for self catering, with kettle, microwave and fridge. No parking, but there are several long term parking facilities in the vicinity.
Very convenient location. Close to central rail station and city centre. Friendly staff, good breakfast.
