Finland is possibly one of the most magical places in the world. Where else can you sleep in an igloo as you admire the Northern Lights?
Finland has single-handedly set the scene for some of the most magical experiences for travellers looking forward to taking it all in.
Check out some of the top things to do in Finland:
Admire the Midnight Sun
We have all heard stories of the magical place known as Lapland. It is one of the best places where you can catch the aurora borealis. In fact, you can catch it for circa 200 nights a year and your chances of spotting them are higher when visiting between the months of September and March.
However, if you are heading up to Northern Finland in the Summer months, you will surely appreciate the Midnight Sun.
The Winter months may be harsh in Finland, but the Summer months make way for a lovely nocturnal swim in one of the many lakes dotted around the country.
Earn yourself some money
Finnish people are known for their love of coffee and gambling. They even have a special type of casino, best known as a no account casino. In the Finnish language, they are known as nettikasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä and they allow you to jump the lengthy registration process and to play casino games.
These casinos are home to some of the best software game developers on the market. You can enjoy a plethora of online slot games, jackpot games with massive prize pots, RNG card and table games and live dealer games.
These casinos are a great way to enjoy gambling from the comforts of your own hotel room or on your phone. You can still very much play slot games at various places across the country, but if you are looking for games for a higher payout percentage, going online would be your best option.
Sleep in an igloo
If you are looking to spend a day or two in the winter months, one of the coolest things you can do is to sleep in an igloo. You have various options to pick and choose from. You can either opt for a glass igloo where you can admire the Northern Lights above you, or else, a real-life snow igloo.
If the cold weather starts to get to you, you can always use a sauna. You should know that the Finns love saunas, so much so, that they have them everywhere including their own homes and apartments.
They are so much loved, that you can find them in strange places including stadiums and libraries.
There is also the first fast-food sauna available at Burger King in Helsinki for the ultimate sauna experience.
Visit the Suomenlinna Fortress
This sea fortress which is in Helsinki is only a short ferry crossing away from the capital. Built in the 18th century, Suomenlinna extends itself across six islands. Here, you can find hundreds of cannons, tunnels, walls and parks.
This fortress was after all built to defend Russia, Sweden and Finland. These days you can enjoy guided tours of this fortress. You can also have picnics and admire the countryside. It is a true spectacle to admire.
Swim in a lake
You may not know this, but there are more than 188,000 lakes in Finland, so you have no excuse to avoid taking a nice dip in one of them. The temperatures can get toasty in the Summer months in some parts of Finland, so cooling off in the lake will be soothing.
Are you ready to go? Finland has so many wonders for you to admire and explore. You are guaranteed to return to experience it at various intervals of the year.
