Finland - yacht charter, tourist guide, descriptions, routes, photos

Yacht charter Finland Finland is associated chiefly with unadulterated nature, magnificent virgin wildlife. It is also one of the most forested countries in the world. An extremely diverse coastline attracts tourists and sailors from all over the world. Thousands of uninhabited islands are yet to be explored. Finland is a place where You can take a deep breath from civilization.

Plains comprising major part of the country are typical post-glacial landforms. Finland’s natural borders are delineated by the Gulf of Bothnia and the Gulf of Finland, between which spreads Finnish Lakeland, intersected by stretches of moraine hills. The Lakeland comprises 60,000 lakes, out of which the largest is called Saimaa. Sailing there is a very popular pastime. Marshes and peat bogs are also frequent landforms in Finland. Almost two-thirds of the whole territory is covered with forests inhabited by bears, wolves, elks and reindeer. North of the Arctic Circle there stretches Lapland region whose unique attraction is the aurora borealis (northern lights) that take place throughout winter. A visit to the traditional sauna is also a must during a stay in Finland.

Interestingly enough, although Finland’s history as an independent state is relatively short, it is one of the richest countries in the world with the very high standard of living. It was established only in 1918 after collapse of tsarism. Due to the fact that from the moment of the conquest by the Finnish peoples in the Middle Ages, the territory of contemporary Finland was long subjected first to Sweden and then to Russia, the newly established state had no national traditions.
