Welcome to Finland

You may be wondering what Finland is like. Who are these Finns and what are they like? How do they live, and what are they interested in?

Covered with forests and fields, and pure and beautiful lakes and rivers that are completely frozen during winter time and glitter in the sun in the summer. The home of Santa Claus, Moomins, Jean Sibelius and Kimi Räikkönen, a place where you can see the midnight sun and feel the cold winter on your cheeks. These are the things perhaps most commonly said about Finland. And yes, Finland is all that, but it is also so much more. We recommend you to be inquisitive and open-minded – to go and experience it all. This way you will learn the most about us Finns and about this northern country – and maybe about yourself also.
