Fun things to do in Finland? What are the secret things only locals do?

What are some fun things to do in Finland which tourists rarely experience?


Country: Finland


Finland has a nature which is in class of its own with - really - tens of thousands of lakes and huge forests. You can find large national parks even within half an hour's bus trip from the capital area.

There are very few dangerous animals in the Finnish forests, so you don't have to be afraid of them, but it's very easy to get lost in large forest areas especially if you're not used to that kind of environment. So, you should always get a guide or some local person with you if you'de like to experience the tranquillity of nature without fearing to get lost.
First of all it will depend on when you are going to arrive here. But generally speaking the sort of fun things locals get up to that tourists don't is actually quite limited in Helsinki as Finland is such a conservative country there aren't that many 'fun' things to do in first place...If you could tell me a little more detail as to what sort of fun things you would like to do such as shopping, dining, sight seeing or clubbing perhaps.
I have a very good friend of mine, Jarrko, who lives in Finland. If u have any questions about how to spend your time there just let me know through my contacts on my website Danys
