INTRODUCING FINLAND
Local Name: Suomi
Finland is one of the northern-most countries in the world and Lapland which makes up nearly one-third of the nation, is north of the Arctic Circle. Finland boasts modern architecture, a high standard of living, and quality education. Nestled between Russia, Norway and Sweden, Finland is a perfect balance of modern development and unspoiled nature.

Just go to Finland and you will once and for all understand what's behind the country's world-class achievements in all snow-related endeavors - a devout passion for winter sports that runs in the Finnish blood.

For how can you not love snow having the wonder of Lapland within easy reach? National parks hibernating under a downy duvet of milky white fluff, reindeer stamping in a dignified fashion, husky-drawn sledge rides, and wood-fired saunas to revitalize your frozen ends. If you hsvr ever wondered how long Santa's beard is or how in the world aurora borealis comes to adorn the northern sky, this is the place to learn it!

Of course Finland is not forever ice-covered, and when the summer arrives, the whole country shakes off the remnants of winter sleep to explodes with music festivals, nightless nights conducive to endless partying, splendid trekking opportunities, and chirping of birds that draw circles above the glossy Lake District. Attracted with clean air, fatty milk and a smell of Runeberg's tarts being baked in lovely cottages, a lot of tourists head for the countryside, finding retreat in the towns of Urjala or Inari.

Helsinki and Oulu are gateways to a joint experience of outstanding culture, refined dining and savvy nightlife. Turku and Rauma let you breath the air of the past while Savonlinna and Pori vibrate with music ranging from jazz through rock to classical.

Finland is an artistic, creative and stylish land, with a respected worldwide resume in glass, fabric and furniture design, athletic competition, all of the performing arts, and innovative civic and social programs.

The great outdoors certainly flourishes in Finland, and for most Finns, a quiet weekend cabin on the edge of a lake, amidst a snow-covered landscape is heaven, unless of course someone forgot to install the sauna.
