    Great list, but one country is missing – Finland. Do you want meet Santa – in Finland it is possible. Do you want have a reindeer ride – in Finland it is possible. Do you want Samba dance – in Finland it is possible. Do you want to hike in our Arctic mountains among free roaming reindeer – in Finland it is possible. What about visiting world’s biggest wooden church – possible. What about to cruise on board of some old steam ship in midsummer, when sun never sets – possible. Much more!

    Happy and safe travels!
