Will I need an ETIAS or a Schengen Visa?
Finland is part of both the EU and Schengen Zone. This means Finland can be accessed by a holder of either a Schengen visa or an ETIAS visa. However, you should consider the rest of your journey or any likely future journeys when applying. A Schengen visa will only allow you to visit one country on your journey (Finland). ETIAS will allow you to visit an unlimited amount of EU countries within a 3 year period. However, remember to check if you are eligible for both visas prior to starting an application.
Why should I visit Finland
If nature is your main interest then Finland is a must see country. With forests and lakes galore, as well as wildlife in abundance, it is the perfect destination for a peaceful, natural getaway.
Finland is also one of the most popular destinations for seeing the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), due to its northern location. There are several destinations in the country set up just for this purpose.
