GROUP TOURS FINLAND
Finland is one of the world's most northern and geographically remote countries, but it is also known as the happiest place in the world (they can argue that one out with Bhutan!). At Our Local Tour, we have sourced the best small group tours of Finland, from local operators providing authentic experiences.
The geography of Finland is characterized by its northern position, its ubiquitous landscapes of intermingled boreal forests and lakes. It is true that Finland is very heavily forested, with over 70 percent of the country covered by thick woodlands. Called “land of a thousand lakes,” Finland actually has 187,888 of them.
Escorted Tours Finland
As a holiday destination, the country is well known for its winter holiday attractions. The northern territory of Lapland is probably the country’s most famous region, with thousands visiting each December hoping to meet Santa Claus. The Lapland region is certainly worth a visit. If you are looking for magical elves and flying reindeer, you are in the right place. However, there is a great deal more to Finnish Lapland than a visit to Santa Claus.
Lapland is the land of the indigenous Sámi people. Sápmi is the their preferred name for Lapland, and the adjacent areas of northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland as well as the Kola Peninsula of Russia. Explore Finland using our expert local advisors and learn about Sámi culture and history, and be sure you’re learning about and visiting with the Sámi in a respectful, ethical way.
