Finland - is a country of some 5 million people, most of whom live in the south, leaving much of the north sparsely populated and giving an almost virginal feel to much of the country. The land is flat, with some two thirds covered by forest and about one tenth covered by the one thousand or so lakes. To drive the 900 or so miles from the southern coast to the north would take some 18 hours, unless you are one of Finland's rally or F1 drivers! Finland was rated in a 2007 survey as one of the best countries to live in from a health and happiness point of view.
Our WILDLIFE groups find fauna is abundant; bear, reindeer, elk and grey wolf are found here, along with some seventy species of fish. Some thirty-five national parks offer the chance to find such wildlife.
One quarter of Finland lies above the Arctic Circle; here in summer the sun never sets for ten consecutive weeks; conversely in winter the sun never rises for some eight weeks in a row
Although Finland has its cities, Helsinki being a major draw, it is the countryside that draws the majority of tourists. In winter there is skiing, Nordic walking, snowmobiling, husky driving, ice-fishing and reindeer driving, all of which appeal to our PHOTOGRAPHY groups. In summer the long days offer much for our GOLF, FISHING, BIRDING and RAMBLING groups. This is a beautiful country with much to do across its dramatic landscapes.
