9th March 2022
In this blog we’re going to help you get to know both Finland, and the adventure boating company that calls Finland home – Axopar! According to the World Happiness Report, Finland was ranked the happiest country in the world in 2021 with a score of 7.842 on a 0 to 10 scale. The Scandinavian nation has taken home this award four years in a row, thanks to its citizens’ strong feelings of communal support and trust, within their communities.
The Finnish have a unique way of life that is largely influenced by their geographic location and climate. Below we explore some fun adventures that can be had while in Finland.
Lapland is the northernmost region of Finland that borders Sweden, Norway, Russia, and the Baltic Sea. Although it’s one of the most sparsely populated areas in the country, it’s also one of the most popular locations to visit for tourists. The area is known for its vast sub-artic wilderness, ski resorts, and the beautiful phenomena that some call the “Midnight Sun” or “Northern Lights”. In the area you can also – feed reindeer, go dog sledding, and visit Santa!
Located on the Southern coast of Finland, Helsinki is the nation’s capital and home to an abundance of history dating back to the stone age. There’s lots to see and do in Helsinki, including unique cultural sights and local Finnish experiences. From art museums and historical cathedrals to a full amusement park in the middle of the city. Live like a local and visit the Löyly Helsinki – an urban sauna, restaurant, and bar, located next to the Baltic Sea.
The Baltic Sea
Hop on a boat and discover some of the most unique landscapes that Finland has to offer. Cruise to the historic Bengtskär lighthouse in the western end of the Gulf of Finland, a structure that’s been guiding nautical adventurers since 1906. Alternatively, you can venture north into the Gulf of Bothnia and explore the Kvarken Archipelago (Finland) and High Coast (Sweden), a joint UNESCO World Heritage Site between Finland and Sweden.
