There is more to Finland than tours of Father Christmas's
Lapland. In the south the Finns can claim one of the most vibrant
and culturally important cities in the Baltic region. Snug against
the coastline the peninsula and islands of Helsinki are home to the
Church in the Rock, Senate Square and the island fortress of
Sveaborg amongst other attractions both old and new.
As if to make it easier to see Finland, tours in the summer
months benefit from extra-long days when the sun seems to be pinned
to the sky. In winter the horizon comes alive over Finland and
tours to Helsinki gain a chance to see the Northern Lights.
