If you’re going to be travelling to Finland, then you need to make sure you read up on the things you want to do, make yourself a list, and perhaps even book some things in advance so that you don’t end up missing out on the things you really want to do. Finland is a trip that can really open your eyes and make you feel like you’ve visited a whole new world. If you’re travelling with kids, you’re bound to have an even more magical experience.
Here are some things you can’t afford to miss out on if you’re in the area!
Visit The Rock Church
Visiting the rock church is something many people find fascinating. This is essentially a church built into bedrock, and is supremely interesting for those who are into architecture. It’s an unusual and beautiful cathedral. Although there will be lots of tourists around, it’ll be worth a look.
Don’t Miss Out On The Aurora Borealis
The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the whole world. It can be spotted from only a few places in the world, including Finland. You can’t always be 100% sure you will see it, but if it turns up, it will no doubt be something you’ll never forget. Many people describe it as ‘nature’s most beautiful natural light show’.
You might be wondering; how does the Aurora Borealis happen? – it’s all very interesting, including atoms, molecules, and collisions that help to create the gorgeous colours you see in the sky. If you’re in Finland, you’re going to want to make sure you see this.
Head To The Sibelius Park & Monument
This is a contemporary monument to the Finnish composer who created the national anthem. Here you’ll find attractive sculptures with grounds surrounding that can make for a nice stroll. If you’re a fan of his music or you simply want to see some great sculptures, make sure you pay a visit.
Book At The Powerpark
The Powerpark is a must visit for thrill seekers. Here, you’ll find small queues with great rides, so you’ll be able to make the most of your time here. Perfect for travelling families but also great for couples who want a little fun in between seeing sights.
Go To The Santa Claus Village
It’s Christmas all year here at Santa Claus village, so make sure you stop by if you’re travelling to Finland with kids. Your kids have the opportunity to enjoy Christmas even when it’s summer back home, and you can give them an experience they won’t forget in a hurry. It could even be worth a visit for grown up Santa Claus fans – nobody is judging!
Make sure you plan to visit these things in Finland if you’re going to be visiting. Of course there are hundreds more amazing things to do, but we’d be here all day.
