Overview

Rekindle your inner child in the magical country of Finland! You'll appreciate grandiose towering artistry in architecture as you've never seen before! From palaces, chapels, cathedrals, and many others! The city of Helsinki is best explored by where your feet shall take you, from the iconic White Helsinki Cathedral, Temppeliaukio Kirkko (Church), Opera house and the various Nationally-treasured landmarks that are housed in the capital city. Once you've had enough of the seaside city, take a trip to Rovaniemi and let yourself be swept off your feet by the romantic and scenic view of Jätkänkynttilä Bridge in Lapland.
