Finland is a country of forests and lakes. One-third of its land area is in the Arctic Circle, which means that in summer it is bright and midnight sun until late, while in winter it remains dark for most of the day. Finns know how to enjoy the short summer as much as possible and how to spend the long winter comfortably.


In Finland, there are many kinds of berries that can be picked. Freshly picked berries are incorporated into breakfast, sometimes on top of yogurt or in oatmeal porridge.


Finns love saunas so much that it is said that there is almost one in every household. The Finnish way of enjoying a sauna is to warm up slowly at 70-80℃ and then jump into the lake to cool down and enjoy in the open air.
