Taking a Vacation In Finland

Mar 26, 2008
Finland is a beautiful country with tourism now playing a major role in its economy. Over four million people a year go on vacation to Finland. The country is made up of beautiful countryside with pine forests, rolling hills and many lakes.

Many people come to holiday in Finland to sample its outdoor activities and clean fresh air. Staying in holiday chalets is a great way to experience this truly unique country. Finland has 35 national parks and stretches from the southern shores of the Gulf of Finland to the fells of Lapland.

In the winter months many families come on vacation to Finland and stay in a picture book chalet and take in some skiing. The more adventurous tourists go dog sledding and many young children come especially to see Santa Claus. Others visit the Arctic Circle where the sun does not rise in winter months.

In Finland in the summer months there are many international festivals for tourists to visit. There are also street markets and performing arts where the tourists can join in the song and dance. The chalets and holiday cottages are very popular with holiday makers taking their family vacation in Finland. It is an ideal way for them to sample the local culture and cuisine.

Finland is a beautiful country in the summer and the receding snow and everlasting sunlight creates an environment that tourists find unique. Golf is popular with holiday makers and many golfing parties stay in a traditional Finish holiday cottage. Other popular outdoor activities in Finland are fishing, hiking and sailing. A series of holiday lodges have been built to cater for these tourists who enjoy the outdoor activities.

Another holiday destination popular with tourists in Finland is the stunning Aland Islands. Holiday makers come back here year after year renting holiday chalets in one of the most beautiful parts of Finland.

The Finish people proudly boast that their country has the best stunning scenery in the whole of Europe. Its combination of beautiful lakes and islands, together with its vast unspoilt forests captivate the imagination of tourists visiting for the same time. It is little wonder that some many of these tourists come back year after year to spend their vacations in Finland staying in a holiday apartment or chalet.

Many families come on holiday fishing trips and stay in log cabins. Some of these holiday chalets many sit in perfect isolation overlooking a lake one side and a scenic mountain on the other.

The lovers of the great outdoors come and visit Finland for family holidays. It is said that no other country in the world is able to provide a family holiday that helps the whole family relax and bond together. It is almost as though the magic of the unspoilt environment helps families to relax and feel truly part of this magnificent country. Staying in a holiday home in Finland is a truly satisfying experience and helps provide for a perfect vacation.
