Northern Finland is comfortably inside the Arctic Circle, and Lapland is a popular tourist destination as it has long been branded as the home of Christmas, with thousands of holidaymakers heading to the area each year to participate in snow activities, meet Father Christmas and catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Finland is known for its eclectic design products and Russian-influenced architecture, along with its famous sauna culture. Finland is the perfect destination for anyone with a love of open nature or clean, vibrant city living.
