By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For me Lonely Planet books do exactly what they say on the tin, and for the kind of holidays I like going on, I'll pretty much always make sure that I'm taking the relevant Lonely Planet with me.

This Finland book is no exception, and helped us find some great places to stay and to eat, many of which we wouldn't have otherwise found out about. We pretty much always agreed with the brief comments in each review as well.

There's a worthwhile 50 pages introducing Finnish history and culture at the beginning and the rest of the book is sensibly organised, starting with Helsinki and the South and working up to Lapland towards the back of the book.

I know this sounds more like an advert than a review but we couldn't fault this book on our recent Finnish trip, and it was well-thumbed.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better LPs of a country in Europe 7 Aug 2007
By Dutch
LP does have better and worse books of the places in Europe (those to the well organized and covered places like Malta or the Canary Islands are really not necessary). This one has for many years been one of my favourite LPs. This because there are still few good detailled guides about Finland, and the book for once does cover travel for both the low budget traveller and those who want to travel more in luxury. Giving also good (although not extensive) information about people, culture, language (of which not a lot is well known outside the country) I would recommend this one to all travellers to Finland, even if Finland actually is a country with excellent tourist office (both national and per place)providing good information on almost all places in Finland, also in english.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of info 29 Nov 2009
We had the previous issue of the Finland guide, but decided to buy the new one for our new journey. Lots of new photo's and information. Lonely planet guides are very helpfull when you want to " get away from the crowds" with good tips on places to go and public transport. Only disadvantage is the guides are a bit boring to see. There's only one photo section, the rest of the book is text.
