From Santa Claus to snow castles
A hidden gem of northern Europe, Finland is a truly spectacular destination. Rent a motorhome and find out why. Lapland isn’t just for Christmas, while the coastal archipelago is worth an extensive road trip on its own. Tampere has an ethereal, delicate feel, surrounded by water. And the Grand Lake Saimaa is the country’s largest – very easy to get lost in the beauty of your environment.
So much to see in Helsinki
Undoubtedly the most famous well-known city in Finland, Helsinki has established itself as a cultural hot-spot, not least thanks to its 1000-plus restaurants. The North and South Esplanades are gorgeous thoroughfares, with numerous islands scattered around the region, displaying picture-perfect scenery. Fantastic for a family road trip.

It’s a very relaxing place and is especially habitable in summer, with incredibly hot, long, balmy days. Unsurprisingly, tourism is now a massive industry with millions heading into Finland. Increasingly modern and built for this influx, outdoor sports are especially popular, from golf to fishing, hiking and kayaking. A roof rack might be handy for your Finland motorhome rental.
