Lakeland

Lakeland is the largest Lake District in Europe. A land of a thousand lakes, Finland flaunts its crystal clear lakes, deep green forests and rolling hills. In fact visiting Lakeland is like taking a trip to the heart of Finnish identity. The Finnish people love to spend most of their time outdoors, indulging in various activities like boating, canoeing, fishing or daydreaming under the trees. Most of the people have their own lake house where they spend their breezy summer vacation with family and friends. The numerous national parks in this region become one of the attractions for tourists. The great way to explore Lakeland is to rent a boat and board one of the many steamers that will take you far away from the hustle and bustle of the city to a journey of serenity to appreciate the earthy fragrance around.In winter, the lakes become giant skating rinks where you will see the Finns enjoying skating totally. I went to the biggest lake of Finland called Saimaa. The experience of walking on a frozen lake and doing ice fishing was undoubtedly the best take away from Lakeland.

The Finnish Lapland is considered as one of the best places to see the northern lights.  Popularly known as Aurora Borealis, one can spot it only if the sky is clear and you are lucky enough. Most of the tourists visit Lapland during the winter to see the nature’s light show. The traditional way of spotting Northern lights are snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobile and reindeer safari. Though I was not lucky enough to spot the northern light during my trip, but that did not dishearten me as I knew for a fact that I would be back again.

One of the most beautiful parts of Finland is its coastline towns and archipelago areas. Finland flaunts world’s largest archipelago and a strong maritime culture. Old wooden towns, lighthouses, stone churches, national park spread across land and sea, beaches and cafes literally sum up life on an island in Finland. Don’t forget to go on an island hopping, kayaking, fishing and most importantly spending a night on a lighthouse island.
