The climate in Finland is classified as temperate continental with four distinct seasons - cool summers and relatively cold winters with temperatures reaching below −40 °C. The most popular time to visit apart from summer would be around February to March when the unique northern lights are seen across the skies of Lapland.
Traditional Finnish cuisine is mostly based on fresh fish and meat served with potatoes or pastry dishes. There are also plenty of fresh berries available in the summertime due to the mild climate and long hours of daylight. Don't forget to try the famous Karjalanpiirakka pastries!
The official language spoken in Finland is Finnish, although Swedish is also recognised as a minority language in some localities. The currency used here is the Euro (EUR). Generally, Finland is slightly expensive when compared to nearby European countries but there are many options for accommodation within the price range.
Without a doubt, if you're looking for interesting historical sites and cultural attractions, natural beauty and vibrant cities with friendly locals, Finland should be your destination - a place you won’t forget!
