Continuing its reign as the happiest country in the world, Finland offers a slower pace of life, and a genuine respect for nature. The Finns favour sustainability and zero waste, and are diligent protectors of the untouched wilderness. After cycling around Helsinki, take a local ferry to tour the world's largest archipelago. Island hopping is the best way to discover as many of the 300 islands as you can. Gain a new perspective from Söderskär lighthouse or visit Suomenlinna, a sea fortress and one of Finland's seven UNESCO World Heritage sites. Kayaking, canoeing and seal spotting are activities to help you explore the land of a thousand lakes. Travel further afield to forage for berries in one of the 40 national parks, visit the Moomin museum in Tampere or even hop on a husky-led sleigh to the Christmas Village where you can meet Santa and marvel at the Northern Lights. Broaden your horizons and embrace the true meaning of green in the Land of the Midnight Sun.
