Where better to vacation than the world’s happiest country? We’re talking about Finland, but there’s so much more to entice you here. This northern European nation is also known for its breathtaking natural wonders, being the safest place in the world and for having the cleanest air.
Take your pick of 5351 Finland hotels starting at CA $124 a night. But why spend more than you need to? Bundle your flight and hotel bookings with Expedia and you’ll get access to some serious savings and bonuses. You can also add a rental car and tours to your Finland Vacation Package. With the money you save, why not hunt the northern lights on a snowmobile or visit the enchanting Santa Claus Village in Finnish Lapland?
Day 1-2: Touchdown at Helsinki Airport and start your adventure in the nation’s capital. Make a beeline for this exciting city’s major sights like Helsinki Cathedral, Fort Suomenlinna and Esplanade Park.
Day 3-5: Pick up the keys to your rental car and head west for around two hours to Turku. Famous for being one of the most traditional medieval towns in Finland, it’s also a great base from which to explore the nearby Aland Islands, an autonomous archipelago.
Day 6-8: No matter the time of year, visiting Lapland is a must. Here you can immerse yourself in nature like nowhere else. Venture out into Lemmenjoki National Park, visit Santa’s village in Rovaniemi or take a snowmobile safari to a reindeer and husky farm. Time it right and prepare to be dazzled by the spectacular northern lights.
Join the celebrations on Independence Day, the Finnish National Day, on December 6 each year. You’ll find the biggest festivities in Helsinki.
