We explored Finland properly, driving from Helsinki in the south, all the way up the west coast, to the Arctic Circle, then back down the eastern Finland-Russia border.

There are over half a million summer cottages throughout Finland. Many of these are alongside its 187,888 lakes. Finland is the world’s largest coffee consumer, and damn they drink it strong.

Throughout the summer the days are long, literally endless in the far north. However, in the winter it’s the flip side with long cold nights.
