How to take a visa-free trip to St Petersburg
Finland is all about the nature. With more trees than people and vast swathes of wilderness, it’s not hard to see why. With 35 national parks, the country is a natural playground for animal lovers and adventure enthusiasts. Visitors come from all over the world to spot the native wildlife or indulge in adventure sports such as ski-ing, trekking, biking and sailing.
To the north of the country you can visit the rugged scenery of Lapland where people have been herding reindeer for centuries – and if you have been particularly well-behaved, you may meet Santa Claus. If natural phenomena are more your style, you may be lucky enough to glimpse the magnificent Northern Lights.
To the south, experience cosmopolitan towns and cities, resplendent with stylish and modern design and architecture. The small and welcoming city of Helsinki offers a thriving cultural scene and pretty churches rub shoulders with elegant restaurants, bustling markets and an array of nightlife options. As well as their party spirit Finns are famous for their love of saunas. Indulge in both for the complete Finland experience!Our Top Finland Tours

HOW IMPRESSED WE WERE WITH THE ORGANISATION OF OUR TRIP
We had a fantastic holiday and everything went very smoothly. We were also lucky enough, albeit through a vehicle fault, to meet up with Jurga. Her husband was our guide on the day out in Riga but unfortunately the car developed a problem. Jurga came out with another vehicle. It was great to meet her having had so many e-mail conversations. It was good to be able to say how impressed we were with the organisation of our trip. It was really well put together and all of the guides were very good and knowledgeable. Bearing in mind the length of time we spent with them we had no hitches. We learnt a lot from the trip and enjoyed hearing the guides' stories.
