Discover a Distinctive Culture and the Dazzling Northern Lights
Renowned for its colorful, lively capital, Helsinki, as well as for countless crystal-clear lakes and thriving, verdant forests, Finland inspires with ice-age wonders and modern design. It’s also one of the best places in the world to view the northern lights, shimmering across its dark skies some 200 nights a year; the Aurora Borealis reaches its zenith from September through March.
Travel with A&K for exclusive access to the experts and activities that allow you to see this fun-loving country at its authentic best. Wander around Helsinki, a food-lover’s dream, walking its cobbled streets, viewing stunning cathedrals or touring Suomenlinna, an 18th-century sea fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at the medieval city of Porvoo, now buzzing with craft shops and colorful buildings. Visit Iittala & Arabia Design Center to discover the history of this iconic Finnish brand, and be sure to take time for a sauna — an experience the Fins have raised to an art form — perhaps followed up by a brisk jump in the snow. If your schedule permits, journey north to Finnish Lapland, where, as in northern Sweden, the indigenous Sami people still carry on a traditional way of life.
Learn about Finland’s ancient past, robust present and limitless future on an itinerary crafted by the experts in A&K’s offices throughout Europe.
