MICE in Lakeland

There are not enough words to describe the magical long a nights of Finnish summertime. The Lakeland area is a perfect example of what Finns cherish most about endless summer days and forever light nights from May until August. From September through to winter, the vibrant autumn colours of the trees display vivid reds, oranges and yellows. These beautiful colours dominate the islands of the Lakes, reflecting of the calm and tranquil waters bringing peace and harmony to the area.
