Three days through Finland

08.11.2022

Directly on the first day we were allowed to discover the city of Helsinki on a city tour. Especially worth seeing here were the Cathedral Church, Senate Square and Sibelius Park. On the marketplace at the harbor, many different delicacies such as reindeer ham and pâté, bear meat and cloudberry jam were offered. A highlight was also the new library, which besides beautiful architecture also has many offers for all visitors. Both locals and tourists can use the sewing machine and the 3D printer or make music in the music studio complete with instruments.

In the afternoon, we continued our journey to Espoo. Here we visited Nuuksio National Park, one of a total of 40 national parks in Finland. On a short hike we visited a reindeer enclosure and afterwards we could enjoy freshly baked scones in the tipi tent during a Lappish tea break.

The second day started with a visit to the Teerenpeli brewery and distillery. The distillery's whisky won the World Whisky Producer award in 2020.

To end the evening we visited a traditional Finnish sauna with igloo, smoke and panoramic glass sauna. The following jump into the water hole of the frozen lake cost some effort, but was worth it. By bathing in the whirlpool afterwards new warmth could be refueled.

The last day of the trip began with a visit to the Korakikka husky farm, where the dogs spend their time until the start of the dog-sledding season.

Our last travel stop was then the ski jump in Lathi, this is used by world professionals for training, while they can not train in the warmer months in other countries.

I was very impressed by the Finnish landscape and the great things to do around Helsinki and I would love to go to Finland again anytime.
