Our Finland Itinerary + VLOGS

I am concluding our Finland travel journey with our entire 10-day itinerary across the country! Our Finland itinerary was packed with all kinds of activities and experiences that really showed us the true culture of the Finnish people and their lifestyle. A lot of people were surprised whenever I mentioned that Finland was on my bucket list, and I still can’t even believe I get to say we have been there! This trip was certainly one of our favorites, and we are more than happy to share our itinerary with you to plan your own trip to Finland!
