Finland is an interesting mix of east and west. During its tumultuous past the country has been occupied by both the Swedes and the Russians. Today with a culture of its own Finland is a pleasant surprise to any visitor to Northern Europe. The capital, Helsinki, known as " The Daughter of the Baltic" is a lovely city built on a harbor overlooking the Gulf of Finland. It is a city of wide avenues and neoclassic architecture. Visit the Church in the Rock and the heart of the city Senate Square. Helsinki is a shoppers paradise with such names as Marimekko and Iittala among Finland's world famous brands. Outside the capital, visit the wooden town of Porvoo and the charming seaside village of Ekenes. Located in the southwest part of the country a visit to Finland's second oldest city Turku is worthwhile. Its Cathedral and Castle should not be missed. Outside Turku is the lovely wooden town of Naantali that is home to the Naantali Spa, Scandinavia's most luxurious and up to date. A short boat ride from Turku are the charming Aland Islands. These Swedish speaking islands offer the visitor beautiful landscapes and friendly people. The northern Finnish area of Lapland is enjoyable both in winter and summer. Here you can visit reindeer farms, meet Santa Claus, and during the winter months cruise on an ice breaker, enjoy snowmobile safaris and try your luck ice fishing. Continental Journeys offers many independent and escorted tours to Finland. We can custom make any tour to fit your needs
