Finland, where you can forget crowds, smog and traffic jams.

That’s not to say that this Nordic country doesn’t have its finger on the pulse. Over the last decade, Finland upgraded its image of saunas, dense forests, ice driving and reindeer to that of a pacey, sleek design capital, and thriving cultural and business hub. Its unique and exotic seasons, its hospitable and friendly people, its wilderness expanses and business-centric capital, make Finland an enviable expat destination.
