A love for adventure, peace, tranquility and all things beautiful. Is what drives every traveler to Finland. What makes it even more interesting is the fact that it stands at number one in the list of World’s Happiest Countries.
A breath of fresh air accompanied with happiness, Finland will give you the time of your life. The safest country in terms of medical risks, security and road safety, it brings along beautiful experiences that take you close to nature. With a rating of 90.68, it obtained the topmost ranking in the 2016 Environmental Performance Index.
The traveler in you will be fed by an amazing experience iced with astonishing facts about the country. Finland has 179,584 islands, and is in-fact nicknamed the Land of a Thousand Islands. Accompanied by that are the 188,000 lakes including Lake Saimaa which covers a surface area of 1,700 square miles, and is home to Saimaa Ringed Seal.
The ninth most tolerant nation in the world according to The Legatum Prosperity Index, Finland also boasts gender equality like no other. Ranking at third, behind Iceland and Norway, aids to its overall stature amongst European travel destinations.
Amongst all its achievements, there is one more thing that will take you back on trip to your childhood. Lapland, the actual Finland is home to Father Christmas. It is a beautiful wilderness that is home to the nomadic Sami and their reindeers. The summers in Lapland offer hiking trails and white water rafting, while the winters have skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling as the options.
With all the travel and adventure, Finland also has great coffee to take all that stress away. Sauna is something that adds to your comfort when visiting the peaceful nation.
What’s truly mystifying are the Northern Lights. If you happen to be there in winter, there are chances that you will come across this very rare and unique phenomenon that will leave you spellbound. However, don’t pack for Aurora Borealis only, because not everyone is lucky to witness this phenomenon during their trip.
While there is so much more to the country than words can tell, it is time you pack your bags and book the first flight to this arguable exceptional country that comes with a disclaimer to give you the best time of your life.
