Finland

The locals in Finland always seem to be lovely and helpful with tourists, while the scenery will without a doubt, blow you away! Our recommendation in Finland is Muonio, as in winter, many have said it’s as if they’re experiencing a real life Narnia!  The Northern Lights are usually visible throughout most of the year, to guarantee your experience of seeing them make sure to travel as far north as you can during late August to April. The effort will be so very rewarding!
