Lapland Getaway: Luosto

by

Getting out into the nature of pure, deep Finnish winter is something that everyone should experience. It makes you fall in love with the season, understand why winter can be incredible and just be out and away from daily life for a while.

Right in Berlin-Neukölln, hidden in a park behind a few fences, lies the Blub waterpark, a former paradise for swimming, relaxing and the ultimate summerday spot.

Helsinki City Escapes IV: Out on the sea

Helsinki is surrounded by water, and in the summer season the cruise offers are a great way to explore seaside Helsinki. While it might seem like a very touristy thing to do – I go on a sunset cruise every summer. Touristy or not – it’s just stunningly beautiful and always lovely. Take some friends, get dinner or just some drinks on the boat and enjoy the scenery!
