Discover - Muslim friendly holidays in Finland

Finland is home to the happiest people in the world, and tourists find a lot of reasons to fall in love with it with their friendly and relaxed approach to life. As a Muslim traveller, there are many things you'd be curious about before coming to Finland. Being one of the most northern countries in the world, Finland has ever-changing climatic conditions, with almost two-thirds of it blanketed by thick woodlands. Since it is far from the mainstream tourist routes, Finland remains a relatively unknown corner of Europe. From majestic forests and beautiful natural landscapes to entertaining and art-filled cities like Helsinki and Turku, this European land is a dream come true for a travel enthusiast.

The Baltic port is the main point of entry for most travellers and is lined with the most important museums and boasts a breath-taking architecture. The cities of Porvoo and Turku are close to Helsinki, and tourists can use the stunning Helsinki Railway Station, designed by the famous Eliel Saarinen, to get there. When in Finland, it would be shameful to be confined to the Baltic coast and not explore the marvellous
Finnish lakes in the west, and the northern lights and Europe's best winter sports in the north. Whether you visit the country during summers or winters, you'll find no lack of exciting activities. Skiing is the highlight of winters, and you will love the large number of skiing resorts dotted in many parts of the country, whereas the warm weather during the summer months is perfect for biking and hiking. Most Finns speak fluent or at least understandable English, making it easier to navigate through the country.

From September to March, the visitors are guaranteed a splendid show of the Northern Lights almost every other night, if the sky stays clear. These lights are sometimes visible from some parts of the south but only for 10 to 20 nights. Also in the north of Finland is Utsjoki, where the sun stays above the horizon for more than two months, from mid-May to the start of July, giving the country its nickname The Land of the Midnight Sun. There are many hotels and camping sites that cater people wanting to see the lights. One can also send an email to the Finnish Meteorological Institute to sign up for the Northern Lights email alerts.

Finland is home to the most beautiful national parks, including the Archipelago National Park, Pyhä-Luosto National Park, and Lemmenjoki National Park. The picturesque views and soothing atmosphere along with the walking trails rugged with flora and fauna get you close to nature. Finland is known for its museums that present the rich history and cultural heritage of the country.
Being the top skiing resort in Finland, Levi has 43 different slopes and 26 ski lifts. The resort also has a dedicated snowboarding park as well as husky sled rides and a cute reindeer park. There's the Särkänniemi Amusement Park in Tampere and the Linnanmäki Amusement Park in Helsinki, where one can unleash their adventurous side and enjoy a good time with family. 
Built in the 18th century, the Suomenlinna Fortress is one of the biggest sea fortresses in the world. Designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a vast complex of 8 islands with 290 buildings and is surrounded by 6 kilometres of walls. Another delightful sight is the Olavinlinna castle that dates back to the 15th century and sits in the Savonlinna. On the inside, it is a maze of chapels and ornate towers, but you can easily find guided tours that will take you back to the old days.

Halal Friendly Amenities

Since Finland is home to a small minority of Muslims, you’ll have to do a little bit of research before landing there. It would be difficult to find halal restaurants, however there is a vegan vibe that runs through the country. The limited halal restaurants are in Helsinki and the most notable ones being New Bamboo Centre, Singapore Restaurant, Maharaja Restaurant, and RavintolaHabibi.

Helsinki has the most number of mosques in the country. Masjid al-Iman, Masjid Darul Aman, the Helsinki Islamic Centre, and Suomen Islamilainen Yhdyskunta are some of the places where Muslims can perform their prayers with ease. Apart from Helsinki, prayer rooms and small mosques can be found in other cities, including the sunny city Vaasa, the most-loved destination Tampere, and the culturally rich Turku.
