Tours to Finland
This Northern part of Europe has long, cold winters, so if you plan to visit Scandinavia or the Baltics during the winter, you can expect bitter arctic winds and plenty of snow. However, by May, the summer has arrived and by June the sun shines at midnight and the locals enjoy Midsummer celebrations.
Finland has a rich musical heritage, best shown in the works of Sibelius, who used the myths of the Kalevala, as well as the lakes and forests of Finland to inspire his music. Groups who visit the capital, Helsinki, can enjoy performing on the Esplanade Stage or at the Rock Church. In between performances, you can enjoy the city's excellent museums, shops, parks and restaurants; or take a boat trip around the surrounding islands. A day trip by ferry to the Estonian capital of Tallinn is also possible. Extending your tour to visit Western Finland would take you to the ancient port of Turku and some of surrounding historic towns and villages. From here you can also take the cruise ferry to Stockholm, which passes through some of the most breathtaking archipelago. During the summer months, tours to all parts of Finland are possible, as there are festivals and concert series held in many locations, welcoming all genres of music.
