Finland

Students wanting an adventure in a far off land could not choose better than Finland (Suomi as it is called in Finnish). With its vast wilderness, midnight sun and long winter nights, Finland is a country of intrigue. Finland’s lakes and forests make up nearly 80 percent of its land area, so there’s plenty of chance to enjoy the great outdoors.
