Hel’yeah to Finland
Pure Moments in Scenic Surroundings
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter – no matter the season, Finland always finds ways to impress its guests. Covered by 70% forest, it offers some of the purest air in the world. The feeling of peace and relaxation rushes through your veins, as the untouched scenic views of natures’ simplicity fill body and mind.
Finland is where east meets west. While MICE tourism from the east has long seen Finland’s potential for creating unique moments combined with personal growth and education, it is still a secret to most western MICE groups.
Winter wonderlands, sunbathed lakes, or historic monuments filled with ancient stories – Finland offers pure moments for the adventurous traveller. Lapland in the north offers Northern Lights and a view of the Sami culture. Helsinki in the south charms it ways into travellers’ hearts with its unique culture, history and art inspired by east and west.
Finns are passionate about their food and celebrate their culinary roots. If you desire a treat, go native and taste the local flavours and delicacies. Most things are provided by nature or locally produced.
Traditional must-try dishes include reindeer meat, a meat low in fat but rich in flavour, or “Finnish Squeaky Cheese” which gets it name from the sound it makes when eaten. The Finnish kitchen has all kinds of fun and tasty dishes which does well for all kinds of travellers.
“An introverted Finn looks at his shoes when talking to you; an extroverted Finn looks at your shoes”. Finns are talkative and hospitable, but myths of how reserved Finns are are still alive, and it is far from the truth.
Finns cherish nothing more than their free time, to enjoy the great things in life, be it food, friends or saunas. Besides relaxing near the lakes, or sweating in the saunas, Finns also love silly competitions, as a break to break the everyday life. Every year Finland hosts multiple events such as the Air Guitar World Championship or the Wife Carrying World Championship.
We say Hel’yeah, and welcome you to join Hadler DMC Scandinavia in Helsinki or the rest of Finland for your next moment in life.
