The daredevil ways of spending sustainable holidays in Finland include adventures that can last up to 24 hours in the never-setting sun and meeting locals in a variety of activities. The country boasts endless gravel bike roads, infinite white water rafting routes, and mile upon mile of breathtaking hikes in Lapland – in the last wilderness of Europe.
Finland, the adventure gem of the North with its pristine views over a landscape of thousands of lakes and the world’s cleanest air, provides travelers with a multitude of ways to adventure sustainably. While adventuring in the country relies on discovering the Arctic wilderness during the four distinct seasons, on the Everyman’s Rights Act in the constitution, and the shared responsibility of respecting local culture –– it is also supported by the Sustainable Travel Finland program by Visit Finland. This label helps visitors make more sustainable choices when visiting Finland.
“We always want to offer experiences that allow for our guests to slow down and take a deep breath in nature. But for those looking for an adrenaline boost, we recommend canoeing in Lake Saimaa, sleeping on wild campsites on the islands, testing your sisu, and downhill swimming 24 kilometers in river Kitkajoki or biking 300 km under midnight sun. These are only some of the sustainable and adventurous ways to spend summer holidays in Finland,” says Liisa Kokkarinen, Head of Sustainable Development, Visit Finland.
