A visit to the very beautiful and exotic Scandinavian country, Finland is part of a gazillion bucket lists. Slowly but surely, Finland has now become a top tourist destination. With so much natural beauty and development, the country was bound to receive its share of appreciation sooner or later.
If you are looking to take a memorable and nice vacation, Finland is the place for you. It is secure, fun, diverse, tourist friendly and has endless natural beauty. For the ticket, most travel experts suggest the usage of American airlines, especially if you are flying from USA, Britain or Canada. Being a passenger of American airlines countless times, I do consider it the most economical. But of course it is always a good idea to check out other airlines too. A landing at the Helsinki International Airport is the most viable and natural choice for tourists. The capital city of Finland is vibrant, exciting and to sum it up, the perfect place to start your trip. Summertime is the ideal season to visit but to be honest, even in winters, there is something magical about the city. Sibelius monument, Kiasma, Natural History Museum, Hietaniemi Beach, Esplanadi Park, Orion Cinema, Ateneum Art Museum, Toolo Winter Garden, Hietalahti Market Hall and Kaisaniemi Botanical Gardens are just a few of the countless amazing landmarks and destination in the city.
After a taste of the urban surroundings, escape to the wild side of Finland and explore the natural beauty the country has to offer. Despite being one of the most advanced countries, the people have made sure that the natural areas are kept the way they are and during summers, even the locals head to the relaxing surroundings away from the urban hustle and bustle. Finland is home to 188,000 lakes and many beautiful islands. Book a wooden cottage next to a lake, swim in the water, catch fish and do a barbeque to enjoy like the locals do.
Nature lovers and adventure seeking tourists are sure to have the time of their lives in Finland. The country is home to almost 35 natural parks which boast wildlife and unique species of plants and trees. Hiking and cycling are the most popular activities. Cycling through the wild pathways with birds chirping in the background makes you closer to nature than you ever wanted to be.
In Finland, the famous residence of Santa Claus is a great source of attraction for tourists. But even more than that, the Korvatunturi Mountain is popular. Located within the Urho Kekkonen national park, the mountain range offers a scenic environment and a visit to this park is said to be a must do thing. Few holidays can be as fun as the ones in Finland and that is why the country stands to be one of the most visited countries of the world.
