Finland Travel

My Finland bucket-list

I love bucket-lists, I do them forever vacation or trip, and of course I made one for Finland as well. Please let me know if I have forgotten anything you think I should do, eat or visit in Finland. I am open to new things, so if you have any recommendation, please tell me in the comment sections down below.

I grouped my undertakings into three categories, cities and regions I want to visit, thinks I want to do, and food I want to try.

If you are new to my blog and want to know what I am going to do in Finland you can click here. Or if you are interested what I think about the Country I will live in for the next four months feel free to read this post.

    Rolling in the snow after sauna is also fun 😀 But I recommend you do it only with really soft snow – if there are any icy patches it scratches your skin and hurts when you warm up in the sauna!
