    ICE KARTING:

    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.

    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.

Description

Unlike the hustle and bustle atmosphere of most European countries, Finland possesses a sense of serenity, poise and peace, a byproduct of much of the country being forested lakes and remote wilderness. Blessed with infinite scenery, Finland offers treks through the countryside during the summer and cross-country skiing during the winter months. In the Finnish Lapland, where the Sami people live ... read more
and still herd reindeer to this day, you can find tours to help you explore the last vestiges of largely unknown European frontier. To get back to civilization, stay in Helsinki, which somehow seems to blend a European capital with a small Scandinavian town. On Fridays, find the Pub Tram, which circles the city during the afternoons, doubling as a pub on rails. Finland offers plenty to do across the country in all seasons and weather. In winter, take advantage of the famous Finnish saunas and Northern Lights and, in the height of summer, join in the festivities of the Midsummer Festival around the summer solstice, when the midnight sun allows for partying in daylight until the wee hours.
