Charter location: Finland

June 28,2022

Known as the 'Land of a thousand lakes', Finland offers a unique charter experience unlike anywhere else in the world.

Finland isn’t always at the front of your mind when you think of yacht charter, but here is why it should be.

Home of the midnight sun, Finland remains one of the best places to enjoy near 24-hour daylight in a surreal experience where the sun barely dips below the horizon during summer. This simply means more time to enjoy Finland’s pristine, untouched nature as well as an extra boost to your tanning time.

Finland has 3 UNESCO world heritage sites accessible from its coast including the beautiful Old Rauma, a traditional Finnish town showcasing old Finnish architecture with entire streets being made entirely from wood. If you prefer a more modern experience, the seaside capital, Helsinki is easily accessible providing stellar shopping, a range of Michelin star restaurants and world-class nightlife.

Hunting one of the largest animals in Europe, the European Elk, can be done from the comfort of your yacht, as well as fishing along the Finnish coast or in one of its lakes.

Outwith the summer season, Finland is a prime winter destination. Famed for its cross-country skiing, dog-sledding, ice hockey and ice swimming, if winter sports are your thing – Finland is your destination.  On Finland’s north-western coast, take the opportunity to gaze at the stars in an unspoiled sky and witness the northern lights, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.

Some members of our team were lucky enough to experience a Finnish superyacht charter onboard 24m M/Y XUMI, which charters in the Baltic sea.

Finland’s coastline is dotted with thousands of gorgeous islands just waiting to be explored. Enjoy the midnight sun in and around your private log cabin, bathing in one of Finland’s many lakes, and enjoy summertime barbeques with fresh Finnish fish. Afterward, pamper yourself in a  traditional Finnish sauna and enjoy a drink under a pristine night sky.

“We will take you to hidden coves, secluded bays and through narrow sounds. Experience the nordic white nights and long lasting twilight not to  forget water sports, sun and fun.” – Captain Tom Ek
