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

TRAVEL COMPANIES LIKE YOURS ARE A REAL FIND.
Hi Phil and Jurga, We want to thank-you and all the guides, drivers etc. for organising such an amazing and unforgettable trip for us. We had a brilliant time and came home with a completely different and very positive perspective of the Baltic States and Finland. We found every city we visited absolutely fascinating and simply could not pick a favourite. It is hard to pick a highlight, but one of them would have to be the local guides and the drivers who took us for our day outings and did the transfers. Without exception, they were first class. Their passion for their country and willingness to talk about their lives and experiences and, as an example, the impact the Soviet occupation had on them and their families, really brought each country to life and helped us understand a little of what it must have been like then. We were also so impressed with all the paperwork and vouchers we received and know a lot of organisation went on behind the scenes. It all went like clockwork and we were nothing but impressed by your efficiency. Thanks again for a super holiday. We would like to visit St Petersburg and Russia at some point in the future and would have no hesitation in using you again to organise the trip.
