There are flags, kids all ages, pølse og lompe, kransekake, icecream, a marching band and nice weather, as usual. This ...

The city's history comes alive during the medieval marketplace that takes place during summer weekends, while naval buffs will enjoy the Maritime Museum (Forum Marinum) located ...

Tampere is a very walkable, picturesque Finnish city that doesn't get close to the amount of tourism that Helsinki, two hours away, receives. If you're already on the southwest coast of Finland, it's worth checking out.

Situated on the Arctic Circle, this Finnish town is most famous for its Santa Claus Village -- the actual North Pole. Santa's home is covered with letters in many languages from kids around the world. There's a colorful village selling Christmas goodies year round and, this being Finland, offering ample coffee and salmon. It's a cute, clean, and chilly town ...

People told me about Porvoo, but WOW, it was one of my favorite things I've done in Europe. The people are lovely, the shops carry great local artist goods and the chocolate! The Brunberg Oy store is here with very reasonable prices and free samples!!! Great day trip within an easy 40 minute bus ride of Helsinki.

One of the many, many islands that comprise the Åland Islands, Sund is particularly worth a visit. It includes a castle and vineyard that makes wine from apples from its own trees.

It's a very-very-very small city. Everything that I remember is a blue-white children jeans that I bought and a drunken man talking in FinEngRussish.

One of the most beautiful places in Finland I've visited, the far-north Inari boasts swaths of pristine forests and lakes. It's also home to the Sami Parliament -- the official government seat of Finland's largest minority group. This was a fascinating place different than any other I saw in Finland.

Cute little beach town. Great for a getaway but pretty quiet if you're looking for excitement. Perfect quiet weekend spot for a sail around the western islands of Finland.

Levi is the biggest ski resort in Finland, with nice slopes for beginners and intermediate skiers, more advanced skiers should head to Alps. The reason for this is that there are no proper mountains in Finland, the top of Levi reaches only 531 m above sea level. But there is dog sledding and good chance of seeing the northern lights ...
