Labyrinth of lakes

The largest lakeland district in Europe, Finnish Lakeland is a blue labyrinth of lakes, islands, rivers and canals, interspersed with forests and ridges. Finland has 188 000 lakes and most of them are situated in the heart of Finland. Lakeland is a natural gem and a source of pride for the Finnish people, who cherish their relationship with nature as a core part of their identity and well-being.

Urban life

The urban life in Lakeland is not all about fostering the history and origins, it’s also the beat of the city, the vivid urban life that the inhabitants get to enjoy, the big festivals attracting audiences, artists and performers from all around the world. The thing that makes our area really stand out is the fact that even though we delight in everything that the urban city life has to offer, the root of it all, nature, is still so close everywhere we turn.
