Finland’s Slush Conference – The Place for Tech Startups in 2017

"Finns will tell you that the worst weather in Finland occurs in late fall when there is cold rain, sleet, and slush. In keeping with the Finnish sense of humor, Finns embrace the foul weather by branding their most important tech start-up conference Slush.

This year, the Conference meets in Helsinki, Finland November 30th through December 1st..."

Reasons to love Helsinki and Finland:

"Many countries are kind to visitors but we found the Finns went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming (the fact that so many speak perfect English was a real boon.)

Bikes are a way of life yet there is none of the power struggle that seems to exist where pedestrians and cyclists converge – maybe it’s the almost complete lack of lycra with everyone wearing just their normal work clothes and cycling at reasonable speed..."

Finland Travel Guide

"Finland itself is stunning, home to mountains, waterfalls, bays, and the area known as Lapland, where you can find Santa Claus and see reindeer!

It’s also one of the best places to see the Northern Lights in the winter, either during an epic outdoor excursion or while you relax in a sauna. If you love the outdoors, this is one of the best countries in mainland Europe to explore nature or go for a hike. Every season has something exciting to offer, however, keep in mind it’s going to be VERY cold in winter.

Due to its out-of-the-way location and the fact that Finland can be expensive, many people skip visiting here — but don’t be one of those people! Finland has a lot to offer, and this guide will help you save some Euros and get the most out of your stay..."

Finnish Weather - Midnight Sun & Polar Night Finland

"The fact that Finland is 1,157km long at its maximum means that the weather can be very different in the north of the country than it is in the south. In fact, above the Arctic Circle there are 8 distinct seasons, each with its own distinct type of daylight, temperatures, and natural phenomena.

These seasons are known as Christmas, Frosty Winter, Crusted Snow, Ice Breaking, Midnight Sun, Colourful Autumn, and First Snowfall. Southern Finland also distinctive seasons, but they are the traditional Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter..."

A marvellous motoring tour of Finland's fantastic forests and lakes

"I am driving from Helsinki airport to the wintersports capital of Lahti on my first visit to the land of Father Christmas and 187,888 lakes, whose tourist board recently dreamed up the deathless slogan: 'Nobody in their right mind would come to Helsinki in November. Except you, you badass.'

With all due respect, nobody in their right mind would jump into the Baltic Sea through a hole in the ice after broiling themselves in a superheated log cabin. Or count all those lakes. Nor would they have a football league that plays only in a swamp or an Elvis impersonator who sings in ancient Greek..."
