Start from Helsinki, go north. There are many ski resorts at the middleland. And lakes for summer vacation.
Finnish people may surprise You to be very closed personalities or sometimes very open and freindly. You never know ;)
They are real professionals advertising their country. You know Santa Klaus, Nokia, Poro, ...
And what is on the picture? It's Helvetinkolu, the Hell in Finland. Not warm? Yes, nordic hell is very cold there. In Helvetinkolu You can hike just few kilometers in snow from hiking centre to lake between the mountains. It's small house on the coast of lake. And in the house - master of Hell making You coffee and strong drink. Coffe is made on live fire. And that's it. You receive a diploma that You have been in nordic hell and go back to hiking centre.
This attraction is popular among japanese. They go to north and just enjoying the silence. It's not any noise there, between the hills and woods.
This strange snowman was on the lake looking tourists going to the Hell.
