Accommodation In Finland
Helsinki: the gateway to Finland
Helsinki is located at the southern tip of Finland, welcoming visitors to its tree-lined shores with open arms. It's an exuberant city alive with stunning Art-Nouveau architecture, a blossoming culinary scene and vibrant nightlife. The Heritage-listed Suomenlinna is a dynamic mix of old-world charm and modern convenience, and tired muscles are soothed in the public saunas.
Star-rated luxury is the norm when it comes to booking a hotel in Helsinki. There's an extensive range of 4- and 5-star venues to choose from including Crowne Plaza and Hilton. There are also a number of mid-range hotels to choose from with the Holiday Inn offering multiple options.
From the land of the lakes in the west to the history of the east
The eastern portion of Finland is known as the 'land of lakes', boasting beautiful vistas over the water, and is a popular destination for summer holidays. You may want to check out the Olavinlinna Castle in popular Savonlinna – a fantastic example of medieval architecture. Staying in the city is a pleasure with many mid-range hotels to choose from.
To the west, historic landmarks offer many interesting points from which to learn the story of Finland. Rauma is a popular spot for picking up the culture of the area with traditional wooden houses. You can also find a handful of hotels that all retain a homely feel and quality amenities.
Experience this legendary Lapland
The northern regions are a winter wonderland where you can ski some of the world's best runs, gaze at the magical northern lights or try your hand at ice fishing. Come summer, the midnight sun emerges and it all transforms into a rustic paradise for hiking and canoeing with little but the native wildlife to distract you from the surrounding beauty.
Stay in the village of Inari for an unforgettable glimpse into the local Sami culture. There is just a handful of hotels to choose from, but all are excellent examples of Finnish hospitality. If city life is more your style, you may want to consider a stay in Rovaniemi – it is the home of Santa Claus after all and you can stay at the Santa's Hotel Santa Claus.
