Finland EUROPE – Capital – Helsinki | Currency – Euro | Timezone – GMT +1
The land with more than 180.000 lakes, a visit to the North Pole and too many trees to even start counting!
Finland is a destination that people may not choose as their first destination on the bucket list, but maybe they should…
Many people speak English, nature is overwhelmingly beautiful and there are more places and resources accessible than you might think.

Travelblogger Sanna writes and works at Palmuasema
“Palmuasema is more than just a travel blog – it’s also the name of my consultation business. I love talking about accessible travel and training travel professionals and students, along with other tourism experts about the complexities of this industry.
I can also provide talks and consultation on different themes around disability and finding your own strengths. My own experiences, together with my work experience and my excitable style of performing have received plenty of positive feedback and recognition.
I offer my expertise to all sorts of projects and programs aimed at improving accessibility in travel and tourism as a whole.”
