Finland tour from Australia

Hey everyone! I'm Rebecca from NSW. My hubby Stanley and I did a ripper during Finland tour from Australia back in January 2024. Just wanted to share our experience with you all. We booked our itinerary through, a top-notch local Finnish tour company. Big shoutout to Denny for making it a memory of a lifetime. The whole trip was organised brilliantly. Cheers!

About our Finland tour from Australia

Me and Stanley were really keen on visiting Finland before planning for a baby, but somehow, we just couldn't get it sorted for years. In 2023, I took it upon myself to push things forward. I started researching for the tour, and it quickly became clear that Lapland in January would be freezing. January was the only month that worked for us due to our work commitments. I'm usually alright with cold weather, but Stanley absolutely hates it. We had a long chat, and I finally convinced him to give it a go.

I thought that was the hardest part sorted, but I was wrong. When I began looking into itineraries, availabilities, tours, and flights, I realized it wasn't easy at all, and we'd need professional help. I work at Westpac, and my busy schedule made it tough to plan it properly.

We decided to find a travel company that could handle everything for us. Stanley tried contacting a few agencies in Sydney, but to our surprise, the quotes were way too high. So, we continued our search online and found's 13 nights, 14 days Finland tour itinerary. I sent them a message, and that was the turning point of our tour.
