Best Places to Visit in Finland

I've been to Finland 4 times. Each time I go, I gain more and more respect for the strong connection with nature that Finns have and the ability to really take it all in - to be silent. On my most recent visit, I discovered the Kvarken Archipelago, Finland's only natural UNESCO Heritage Site, which remains my very favourite place in the country to-date!

They can drink in a manner which would challenge the Russians, they love karaoke and prisoners are allowed to use the sauna once a week! Seriously! Who knew!
