The largest lake district in Europe, Lakeland boast immense beauty and a selection of charming towns. Deep green forests and gentle hills punctuate the multitude of glistening lakes, rivers, and canals. Most of the region's towns sit on the banks of lakes, having relied on them heavily for transport in earlier times. This brings¬†easy access to restaurants, bars, and cafes even in the great beauty and wildness of the lakes. Kuopio, one of the area's biggest cities, offers the most bustle and a selection of diverse tourist attractions. The clean and vast waters here are ideal for watersports, particularly kayaking and paddle boarding. Plan your tour of Lakeland and Finland travel itinerary using our Finland journey maker.
