Two Million Saunas

Sauna, the best place to meet Finns. It is said that there are enough saunas to easily accommodate the entire population of Finland.

And then there are lakes, clean lakes and lots of them. Finland is called the land of a thousand lakes, 188,000 to be precise.

From Helsinki to lake Inari in Lapland, Finland is filled with an oasis of clean blue. Lake Saimaa’s ringed seal, one of the most endangered species in the world, is the country’s largest lake’s most memorable attraction.
