It's only fitting that a country with so many reindeer is the home of Santa Claus!
Lapland in Finland's north is proud of its most famous resident, and you can even visit the jolly bearded man himself at Santa's village in Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle – just make sure you've been a good boy or girl!
But don't be fooled into thinking Finland is a winter-only destination – far from it. Helsinki, Finland's capital, is the country's southern hub and home to some interesting attractions such as Suomenlinna Fortress.
There are some great drives through the rest of the country, from the Arctic tundra of the north, which is still home to the indigenous Sami people, to the countless lakes and pine forests of the south.
You'll love everything about your travels here, from start to Finnish!
