Cheap Flights to Finland
Finland is one of the largest countries in Europe, but is still the least populated, which makes an ideal holiday destination for those who want to keep away from the crowds.
Two of the top museums that are worth visiting are the Ateneum Art Museum and the National Museum in Helsinki, with the former one holding the best collection of Finnish art anywhere. Also the Korkeasaari Zoo houses animals from the arctic and far off tropical rain forests and is accessible by a fifteen minute ferry ride from the city.
Another fabulous place to visit is the Ice Park in Finland’s Railway Station Square. This is a great place to rent skates, meet the locals and try a little local cuisine at the many cafes.
For your special arctic experience in Lapland, why not try and find low cost Finland flights from Travelspec.com and you could soon be transported to a real and never ending white wilderness dream.
Also for the younger generation why not go to the countries oldest amusement park at Linnanmaki where exhilarating rides and shows will keep everyone entertained for hours on end.
If you are planning to go during the icy Finnish winter, then the special marked skiing tracks are probably the best way of getting around. Besides skiing on “terra firma”, there is also water skiing, jet skiing and sailing facilities along the many lakes of the Lakeland region.
Dog sledding is another way to whiz across the snow and there are special excursions in Harriniva, where you can book husky rides that will certainly keep you on your toes!
To finish of the ice theme, a stay at the Lumi Linna snow Hotel will certainly chill you out. Constructed entirely from snow, guests sleep in temperatures of -5°C, although they are provided with very suitable and well padded down sleeping bags!
You can’t go to Finland without experiencing the countries most popular pastime- the quintessential sauna. The Kotiharjun public sauna and the Jatkankamppa smoke sauna are two of the most well known locations for those who like to indulge themselves when sweating away their troubles.
Midsummer is when the sun never really sets and the population retreat to their cottages to enjoy the near 24 hour daylight time. There are plenty of activities and events to partake in from Ice fishing to Wife Carrying World Championships, so whatever your tastes are, come to Finland and let the country take care of you!
