Lapland is the most snow guaranteed place in the Europe. Not only the climate but also Finns are considered to be cool - a bit quiet and reserved. But they are actually warm, friendly, hospitable and especially honest people.
The first impression you get, looking out from the window of the plane, is that there are a lot of trees. An endless carpet of forest, with lakes in between. And a few small farms and small towns. So it's kind of a surprise when you land in Helsinki to find that the airport is so modern and efficient. Not a polar bear in sight.
You'll have a few more surprises as you travel around the country. Meeting a herd of reindeer in Lapland.
Sailing among thousands of islands in the archipelago, or on one of thousands of lakes in eastern Finland.
The endless days of summer and the endless nights of winter.
