Singles Holidays in Finland - land of a thousand lakes
Finland is otherworldy and empty - in a good way. North of its capital, vast belts of wilderness stretch seemingly uninhabited and unexplored and it is an ideal destination to lose yourself in the expanses of forest and lake.
Finland is best known for its spectacular winter landscapes and stunning scenery, the land of a thousand lakes and home to Father Christmas. Summer's endless light balances winter’s eerie frozen magic. In the sunny season, it plays host to a countrywide outpouring of good cheer, celebration and festivals, as the mid-summer is greeted with a great sense of optimism and hospitality. The winter in Finland is a paradise for the more active among us, with every conceivable type of wintersport from skiing, to dog sledding, snowmobiling and snow-shoeing. Winter also offers the chance to catch a glimpse of the mystical and extraordinarily beautiful Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights.
However, Finland is able to offer us yet more and the Finland that you encounter will depend on the season of your visit. but whatever the month, there’s something pure in the Finnish air and spirit that’s vital and exciting. With towering forests, speckled by picture-perfect lakes, as if an artist had flicked a blue-dipped paintbrush at the map, Suomi offers some of Europe’s best hiking, kayaking and canoeing. A fabulous network of national parks has well-marked routes and regularly spaced huts for overnighting, and you can observe bears and elk deep in the forests on nature-watching trips.
