From dogsledding with huskies to riding on a sleigh with reindeer, there is so much adventure to be had in Finland! I hope these photos to inspire you to visit Finland, worked!

I loved every moment of that, but actually just seeing the snow-covered trees and being in crisp, cold, fresh air, was enough to make me love Finland. The blueberry juice, cloudberry jam, and delicious rye bread were some of my favorite foods.

Finland is easy to get to with budget flights from WOW Air in the USA or Finnair in Finland. From India, Jet Airways will get you to Amsterdam with ease and you can take Finnair from there.

    Absolutely stunning photos. And you are just too cute in your furry hood- you don’t get to wear that much around Goa, huh? :)
