The countryside of Finland is an exciting adventure playground with so much to offer during summer.

Take a hike through the eastern part of Finland’s taiga forests of Kuhmo and catch a glimpse of the elusive animals like the brown bears, wolf, deers, lynx and wolverine.

Do you enjoy hiking or biking? Well, the forest trails will give you an adrenaline thrill through the wilderness. You can later escape to a nearby countryside villa for a refreshing time in the serene surroundings.

With its expansive lakes and rivers that are naturally interlocked, flora and sauna is at its best. The pure, fresh, serene and beautiful flora and sauna are simply irresistible. You can choose to relax by the water for a quiet day while sipping away on a cold beer, doze off on your deck by the water’s edge or sail around with a rowing boat and fishing bait and rod. You can later grill your fish for supper.

During summer in Finland, the sun only sinks low but rarely sets. This gives tourists a perfect opportunity to enjoy the glorious site of the sun fading away in a warm and peaceful environment.
