Listen visit Finland info best places to visit Finland best Finland destinations.

The long and icy backbone of Scandinavia, Finland rarely fails to enchant. It draws travelers with the promise of Lapland’s far-flung forests and fells, snow-packed ski fields, the Sami and Santa, the cutting-edge cities of Helsinki and Turku, uber-friendly locals, swish design studios and some of the most wonderful and rugged coastal stretches in the world. Here, we take a look at 15 of its top bucket-list destinations.

Lets explore the best places to visit in Finland:


A cocktail of industry and innovation, Finnish hospitality and the vibrant arts, Tampere can be found sandwiched between the two colossal lakes of Pyhajarvi and Nasijarvi – both of which offer endless opportunities for boat cruising, hiking and cross-country skiing by winter. Back in the city and the old red-brick mill houses of yesteryear now play host to off-beat exhibitions like the Hiekka Art Museum and the Lenin exhibit, while the Moominvalley Museum and the Amuri open-air park offer glimpses of Finland’s famous Tove Jansson and the nation’s labour history alike. The middle of town is cut-through by the roaring Tammerkoski Rapids, with nearby Keskustori Square and the strip of Hameenkatu buzzing with tea houses, heavy metal dives and black blood sausage holes-in-the-wall.


A city of more than 600 years of history, Porvoo hails in as one of Finland’s few bona fide medieval settlements. It can be found clinging to the pretty topography of the Baltic Coast just a short jaunt east out of Helsinki; a patchwork of crooked timber homes painted in red and orange and historically-rich town squares clad in cobble, all fringed by the Middle Age constructions of the town’s onetime Swedish masters. Right at the heart of the centre, the gorgeous Porvoo Cathedral and its half-wood façade ooze with tales of Russian and Danish invaders alike, while locals gather in the marketplace of Old Porvoo to sip coffees and people watch the day away.


Ranging from the snow-caked forests of Riisitunturi to the stark and windswept fells of the north, the icy rollers of the Gulf of Bothnia to the blasted boreal tundra of the Arctic Circle, Lapland is every inch the mysterious, untapped, untrodden wilderness you’d expect. Travelers flock here to man the husky sleds and delve into the wild forests that encompass ice-crusted Lake Inari, they come to sample hearty reindeer steaks and cloudberry preserves, to see Santa Claus in his ancestral home, to ski the treeless hills, encounter the earthy Sami peoples and their charming town steads, hike the rugged borderlands with Sweden and see ancient timber churches dotting the northern wilds.


Facing Sweden on the northern gulf, Oulu is a charming town of islets and bridges, prosperous neighbourhoods and prestigious universities. Indelibly green and verdant in the summer, the banks of the brackish River Oulujoki delineate the town centre, carving it up into a series of pretty cays as the tendrils of the delta move outwards to meet the salty rollers of Bothnia. It’s here that travelers will find the lively cobbles of the central Kauppatori square, packed with farmer’s markets on the weekend, and the bubbling main drag of Rotuaari, with its looming department stores and clutch of student cafes and bars. This all comes peppered with the pretty neo-Renaissance facades of the City Hall and one cutting-edge science centre to boot.


The beating cultural, economic and political hub of Finland as a whole, Helsinki is unquestionably one of the most bucket-list capitals in Scandinavia. It bursts forth from its location on the edge of Uusimaa; the Baltic lapping up against its countless inlets and harbours; its resplendent gold-gilded and whitewashed architectural rises belying Petersburg and one seriously ambitious tsarist rebuilding from two centuries ago.
