Do you have the Northern Lights on your travel bucket list? Have you ever considered visiting Finland in order to see them? Trizzy never even THOUGHT of putting Finland on her list, until a booking mishap forced her to look into it. The original plan was to book an igloo in Alaska.
None of Trizzy's circle of friends has even been to the country, so it was thrilling to plan 9 nights/10 days chasing the Northern Lights, in a country she knows nothing about.
Our first episode of 2022 is all about how to plan a trip to Finland if you are mid-budget and have less than 2 weeks, but still want to pack in as many activities as possible! We promise you, Trizzy will have you searching for your next flight to Finland before the hour is up!
