Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Finland your home away from home

Finland is a beautiful country, located between Russia and Sweden. The breathtaking landscapes are unforgettable, filled with wildlife and the ideal base for an adventure. The country is truly magical, covered in thick, majestic forests and littered with timeless lake scenery. In the north, the sun doesn't set for several weeks, which is a truly amazing experience, but it is the ski and spa resorts in Finland that really draw the crowds.

Things to do in Finland

Finland is a magnificent place to get away from it all during the summer months. The stunningly unspoilt natural scenery will capture your heart, and reinvigorate your mind. There are some 180,000 lakes making up the landscape, and as a result, sailing and fishing holidays are simply sensational. Huge, wild salmon are caught on a regular basis, and information on Finland's finest fishing locations is easily found. There is nothing in the world more peaceful than taking a kayak and a fishing rod and silently paddling along one of Finland's many lakes. Salmon, rainbow trout, perch and pike are the most popular fish to catch on holiday in Finland.

Hiking, riding and cycling holidays are particularly special in Finland due to the enormous amount of wildlife that you will see, (as well as the absolutely breath-taking scenery that you will discover). Bear watching is a particularly popular activity on Finland holidays, which starts in April as the bears leave their layers after the winter hibernation. Moose, elk, reindeer, flying squirrel, whooper swan, wolves and the world's largest falcon, the Gyrfalcon can often be seen in Finland, and if you are lucky, wild lynx can also be seen in the northern region.

Winter sports thrive in Finland. Holidays skiing in Finland are absolutely magnificent, and the huge variety of winter sports completely unique to the county (reindeer skiing springs to mind), will inspire and enthral even the most seasoned snow sports enthusiasts. Those looking to go skiing in Finland should look to the fairytale landscapes of Iso-Syote, Levi, Ruka, Salla or Yllas. Ski and spa resorts in Finland are particularly popular, and visitors are spoilt for choice.

Places to visit on holiday in Finland

Eastern Finland, or Itä-Suomen lääni in Finish, is a beautiful region, home to some of the most luxurious ski and spa resorts in Finland. Spa holidays are particularly special, and the castles that stand on the lakesides are truly spectacular.

You will always see reindeer from a Finland holiday rental in Lapland, an area in the north of Finland, very close to the Arctic Circle. The pure, unspoilt nature of Lapland makes it a stunning retreat, perfect for any outdoor pursuits. Skiing holidays in Finland are particularly special here too.

Weather in Finland

Region variations are large, with parts of northern Finland located well within the Arctic Circle. In general however, you can expect monthly average temperatures of around 18°C from June until August, and temperatures below freezing from December until the beginning of April. February is the coldest month, experiencing average temperatures of -7°C.

Travel to Finland

The main airport in Finland is Helsinki-Vantaa (HEL), located about 5km outside the Finish capital. Served by direct flights from Dublin (DUB),Londonand Manchester (MAN), Helsinki is the most used airport for holidays to Finland, but Ryanair also provide direct flights to Tampere (TMP) in Eastern Finland fromLondonStansted (STN).

Lovely cabin, in a beautiful place

5 of 5
We stayed in the cabin over Xmas with our three young children aged 5,7 & 10 and were immediately blown away with how lovely the cabin was. There were DVDs for us to watch and a CD with Xmas songs on in the CD player, which were both used a lot during our stay! It is not easy to feel at ease in a different country with young energetic children, but we truly did feel like it was our little home for our stay and the children settled straight away. We had a lovely relaxing break, far away from the demands of everyday life, and a wonderful family Xmas. We visited to nearby ski resort where our 10 year old tried out snowboarding for the first time, and took a sleigh ride through the forest to visit Santa on Xmas Eve, it was truly magical. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the Northern lights, but that just means we will have to come back!! Thank you for a wonderful holiday and once in a lifetime experience.

Luxury accommodation in beautiful lakeside setting.

5 of 5
The cabins are just as you see on the web site. New this year they have been well thought through and provide almost everything you could want at such a location. There is accommodation for 4, so for us as a couple there was more than ample room to relax. We chose to use the upstairs bed. The ceiling is low here but its worth putting up with a bit of discomfort getting in and out of bed because the view is stunning. It is like having a full wall picture in front of you that is living. We spent a lot of time out on the deck which was remarkably bug free and there is a walk to the headland to the East which is very pleasant. The sauna was great and the toilet and shower area clean with ample towels provided. Coloured sets mean no confusion as to whose is whose! We made use of the washing machine which was useful on our 2 week Scandinavian trip. Cooking facilities come in the shape of a 2-ring hob, microwave and barbecue. A conventional or combi oven/grill would be an improvement and allow you to cook a greater range of things.but we were able to knock up some great meals with what we had. The shops in Taavetti are less than 10 minutes drive away but be warned the Alko closes at 16:00 on a Saturday ! The selection of shops at Lappeenranta is much greater. If coming from the Kouvola direction you really need to use a sat nav to find the place. Signage from the Lappeenranta direction is much better. We went on trips to Lappeenranta which we found very pleasant and did a cruis on the Saimma canal. We also visited the historic paper mill at Verla and the Tsar's fishing lodge at Kotka. The Salpa line is only about 15 minutes away at Jurvala and there are interesting walks from the car park on route 6 which is clearly signposted. It wasn't in our guide book and so was an added bonus. Some little things to be aware of is that the blinds were a bit temperamental and needed gentle handling; the glazed partition of the bed area lets light through and passers by to see in. We covered it with the bed spread at night; the TV stations have been selected for Russian visitors a few local stations which often have English programmes with Finnish sub-titles would give a wider selection. However, with good weather we were outside most of the time and it didn't really matter. We hope you enjoy a stay here as much as we did.
