The best 5 star hotels in Finland
Stylish architecture, excellent food, and spectacular seasons make Finland a must-visit travel destination, especially as the 5 star hotels in Finland offer plenty of luxurious choice when it comes to where to stay.
Autumn and spring are particularly good months to go because that’s when you have the best chance of seeing astonishing northern lights, but picture-perfect snowy winters and bright sun-dappled mountains, forests, and gorgeous tranquil lakes in summer mean there isn’t really a bad month to visit Finland at all.
The range of activities on offer is vast, including ski trekking and husky safaris, visiting a reindeer farm, and of course viewing the awe-inspiring northern lights from a variety of viewpoints, including driving a snowmobile while admiring the aurora borealis above you.
There are some great fashion and accessories, and interiors shops, particularly in Helsinki, if you love to include some therapeutic shopping on your travels, and Finland is also one of the best wellness and wellbeing destinations in the world. A beautifully designed and relaxing sauna, a walk in a virtually untouched forest, and pure, clean food from Finland’s arctic nature are all you need to unwind from the stress of modern life.
Finland has some exceptional and unusual accommodation to choose from right across the country, including igloos, cabins, ice hotels, and treehouses. But what is perhaps not as talked about is the quality and choice of amazing luxury 5 star hotels in Finland too.
We’ve hand-picked some of the best for you to browse below, outlining what makes each luxury hotel unique, special, and ultimately swish.
