Thousands of reasons to visit Lakeland
You might have heard that Finland is also known as the land of thousands of lakes? Well, there’s a good reason for it! There are almost 188 000 lakes or ponds in the whole country, and Lakeland is home to numerous of them.
Lakeland’s pristine nature reserves are top destinations year-round offering plenty of things to do in all four seasons. Pick mushrooms and berries in the gorgeous setting of autumn foliage, try snowshoeing in the old-growth forests in the winter months, or visit the birdwatcher’s paradise, the mires, at the height of the season in spring. In the summer you might want to end your hike on the esker islands’ sandy shores and cool off with a little dip in the freshwater. Take your pick!
