What is summer like in Finland?

 

Short but intense, the bright, warm, and lush Finnish summer arrives every year like a miracle after a long period of cold and darkness.

Finland comes alive during the summer months. Summer days are long, we have almost no night, and we can appreciate the midnight sun.

The summer colors give us the perfect setting for a vacation in the south, walking through cities like Helsinki and Tampere, where you can enjoy multiple outdoor activities, bathe in a sauna, and swim until late at night with the sun still present.

 

 

ITINERARY 

 

Day 1 Welcome to Helsinki!

 

Helsinki is a charming coastal city with a unique touch. Located on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, Helsinki is a place where urban culture meets coastal nature. The laid-back Nordic lifestyle and friendly local people make it easy to fall in love with this northern city - the capital of the happiest country in the world!

Our capital has interesting Nordic design and architecture, from modern wooden saunas, Art Nouveau districts, the famous Oodi Library, and the neoclassical gems of Senate Square to Alvar Aalto's iconic buildings, Helsinki offers much to see for visitors and lovers of architecture and design.

 

Day 2 Guided tour and Finnish food tasting

TAMPERE: where lakes and forests meet the urban

 

Tampere is known for being the sauna capital, with over 50 public saunas!

This city offers a unique combination of natural beauty and urban life. The laid-back locals will welcome you and the old red brick industrial buildings next to the Tammerkoski River will captivate you with their history.
