    28 Ways Finland Wins At Summer

    Is there anything better than a sauna?

    1. Finland is the best place in the world during the summer.

    2. For starters, it's unexpectedly sunny.

    3. And days go on forever.

    4. Which means that you'll never want to go inside.

    5. You'll want to explore the beautiful countryside forever.

    6. Of course, Finnish summer evenings are utterly gorgeous.

    7. There's nothing like a trip to the sauna after a long day.

    8. Followed by a dip in the lake.

    9. And if boating's your thing, Finland's got the lakes for it.

    10. Besides, rowing is the the most fun way to get a tan.

    11. Finns take Midsummer incredibly seriously.

    12. And they do summer food incredibly well. Karjalanpiirakka are the most delicious thing.

    13. Especially if you cover them in munavoi.

    14. And being surrounded by blueberries means you can't get enough blueberry pie.

    15. Or wild mushroom soup.

    16. But nothing tastes as good as wild strawberries.

    17. Or freshwater fish.

    18. Except maybe korvapuusti.

    19. Or oven pancakes.

    20. And then there's the wildlife. Finnish forests are full of elks.

    21. And lynx.

    22. And bears.

    23. Finland gets a lot of thunder over the summer. But its storms are beyond spectacular.

    24. And lots of the winter ski lifts get turned into viewing platforms.

    25. So you get views like this.

    26. And if you do leave the lakeside...

    27. Finnish summer markets are the best.

    28. And wherever you are in Finland, you're never far from a lake.
