From the striking architecture of the capital, Helsinki, to the fishing and sailing paradise of the Åland archipelago and the wilderness wonders of Lapland, there is a rich choice of culture and nature in Finland. Trek above the Arctic Circle. Cross-country ski over winter fells. Canoe across forest-fringed lakes. Listen to the music of Sibelius in the composer's home country. Experience the light summer nights in the land of the midnight sun. The south offers national art collections and the islands of the Baltic Sea. The lakes and rivers of central Finland present the pleasures of fishing, swimming and rafting. While the north of the country is a land of moose, reindeer and pine forests - and on clear nights in the autumn and winter the spectacular northern lights can be seen here. Finland's hostels are well located for exploring Europe's seventh largest country, and many offer traditional Finnish activities.
