Cycling holidays in Finland

There is no other country in the world that is characterised by water more than Finland. The coastline alone boasts a total length of nearly 40 000 kilometres, counting approx. 73 000 islands with an area of more than 500 square metres each. Inland countless lakes await – the Ministry of environment states the number of lakes to be precisely 187,888. The Ministry however admits freely that there may be a few more than this to be added to this number as they are still in the process of counting and analysing.

Perfect cycling holiday thanks to excellent conditions

The South of the country is relatively densely populated, whereas in the North uninhabited areas await visitors. Cycling holidays in Finland are still relatively unusual despite the fact that the country provides excellent conditions in more than one way. Alongside a superb infrastructure with well constructed roads, the weather is pleasantly mild during the summer months. Another decisive factor is that Finland is considered a country full of hills and many mountain chains. However, please note that you hardly ever have to ascent more than 50 metres at a time, which means steep ascents are only a rare exception.

Idyllic scenery and a unique island world invite you to a cycling holiday

For sure there are many regions in Finland where you could spend an enjoyable cycling holiday close to nature. Ranging from the lake scenery of the South over the dense forests in the centre to the vast steppes of Lapland an especially beautiful and unspoilt landscape awaits – only the length of the routes increases naturally in the sparsely populated regions. Among others, Eurobike offers you a cycle tour through Finland's archipelago. Starting in Turku, the country's oldest city, you will explore the breathtaking Finnish island landscape. Your journey takes you to the picturesque coastal town of Parainen, to the medieval church of Korppoo and also to Naantali, where the summer residence of the Finnish President is located. In June and July, you have almost endless daylight, which makes your cycling holiday even more relaxing. After numerous attractions along the route, you can relax in the evening with fresh fish and the obligatory Finnish sauna.
