Finland is a beautiful country that takes great pride in its forests and parks. The country boasts over 40 national parks and is Europe’s most forested county, with over 75% of the country covered in forests. On the other hand, about 10% of Finland is made up of bodies of water. In fact, the country has a reputation for being “The Land of a 1,000 Lakes.” Off the coast of Finland, there are approximately 180,000 islands, most of which are incredibly small. Of those, about 800 are currently inhabited. Taking a drive or a boat tour around Finland is a great way to explore new parts of the country while discovering its beauty.
