Vaccinated travellers welcome to Finland

The Finnish authorities have relaxed travel guidance procedures for certain travellers visiting from the EU and Schengen countries. Holders of the European Union Digital COVID-19 Certificate (EUDCC), which shows proof of vaccination and/or recovery from COVID-19, may now enter the country without adhering to quarantine or testing rules.

Please note: Visitors must be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before travelling to the country. Those who have received only one vaccination must take a COVID-19 test between 72 and 120 hours after arrival. If visitors have not been vaccinated, but have a certificate of a negative test, they will need to take another test between 72 and 120 hours after arrival into Finland. Children aged 14 years and under are exempt from this rule.

Experience the dancing lights of the aurora borealis on a sustainable trip to northern Finland

Get off-the-beaten path and experience the raw and pristine nature of Finland this autumn. Step outside the city limits and discover the northern wilds of the Arctic region, home to indigenous reindeer, grey wolf and brown bear. Experience the aurora borealis, a unique natural phenomenon which sees ribbons of green light dance across the night sky, best seen between September and March. Why not take a slow adventure and stay in a sustainable rustic eco-lodge in the forest. Built using local materials, such as Lappish wood, which absorbs carbon dioxide, and powered by solar panels and geothermal systems, it’s a good way to reduce your carbon footprint.
