Finland is comprised of many islands – more, in fact, than any other nation in the world. Much of the nation is covered by forests and icy landscapes, with many unspoilt natural features and a total of 188,000 lakes. From the northernmost tip of the country, it is possible to look into the skies and admire the Northern Lights - one of the world’s most impressive natural phenomena. From here, it is also possible to travel to the festive region of Lapland, with its pines and spruces that create a unique Christmas atmosphere.
The Finnish capital of Helsinki offers a historical insight into this Scandinavian nation, with many impressive museums, churches and intriguing landmarks worth visiting. Some of the most notable of these include the expansive Senate Square, the Lutheran Cathedral, the Sibelius Monument, and a unique church which has been dug out of solid rock.
One of the best ways to experience the Finnish capital is to embark on a cruise of Scandinavia or the Baltics, which will also offer the chance to visit neighbouring nations including Sweden, Norway, Russia and Estonia.
