Go-karting on ice? Yep, pretty sure the Fins know how to have a lot more fun than the average. This new sport gives reckless driving a whole new name. These specially designed karts are built on studded tires and more powerful engines than their land-based counterparts, and the icy track requires a whole other level of technical finesse from the driver. Take the mini-wheel and go for a spin around a frozen lake to warm up, then pick up the speed and race a few friends for a chance at the prize. Either way, your winter crew will have a whole new claim for fame to laugh about on the way back to the lodge.Recommended for:

Upon landing in Finland for the first time, I was struck by all the greenery I saw from the plane. I soon learned that 75 percent of the country is covered by forests, and also boosts an extensive network of pristine lakes and hiking trails that anyone and everyone has access to. As a nature nut, I was sold there. But after spending five weeks traveling all around Finland, I discovered many more charms: saunas along the Baltic Sea, quirky design hotels, markets selling fresh berries, a Swedish-speaking network of very bike-able islands off the coast, and the list goes on. Finland is definitely worth a visit, not just to the southermost capital of Helsinki, but to cities such as Turku and the Åland Islands.
