Finland: a skiers' paradise in the north

Where winter is at home

Snow-covered treetops, endless landscapes, legendary northern lights – winter in Finland could hardly be more picturesque. It's obvious that skiing in Suomen tasavalta (Finland in Finnish language) is an exceptional experience. What's more, you're visiting Father Christmas' official home country!

If you're not familiar with it, you might not think of Finland as a country that is predestined for skiing. It's largely flat and often considered a "land without mountains". But maybe you should think again – because you can definitely live it up on the slopes there! Around 75 winter sports resorts boast wide slopes perfect for beginners and leisurely skiers, and there are even some world-class racing slopes for more ambitious winter sports enthusiasts.

Tip: Finland's northern location ensures there is plenty of snow. In northern Finland, winter season starts in November and lasts until around May. In Southern and Central Finland, you can expect snow from early December to the end of March or April.

Our RENTertainers recommend

One thing is for certain: A holiday in Finland without huskies is not a true holiday in Finland! How about a husky-sledge ride in Lapland, for instance? Swooshing across the white glistening snow on the back of a dog sledge is an experience you'll remember forever!
