Finland is home to the happiest people on Earth. Perhaps it’s because they have the cleanest air on the planet or more forested land than the UK or Italy. Or maybe it’s the 187,888 lakes and miles and miles of trails for hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing. Maybe it’s just because they drink the most coffee in the world, which also explains why there are remote backcountry cafes on the trails. It might be as simple as Finland being the official home of Santa Claus. No matter the reason, it’s hard to visit Finland and leave unhappy. Now, if we can only figure out their obsession with heavy metal and angry birds.
