What They Are Saying“In the past, many American independent travelers have skipped over the Nordic countries when they travel to Europe,” said Paul Barry, executive chairman of Avanti. “But in the past few years, we have seen a high growth rate in bookings to the region.
“Finland is probably the least familiar European country to American travelers, and yet it is the most intriguing, situated between Russia and Scandinavia,” Barry continued. “It has so much to offer: cutting-edge design and architecture, culture, music, food, and outdoor adventures. Finns cherish their connection to nature, are devoted to the ritual of sauna, and most speak excellent English. We are very pleased to partner with VisitFinland in shining a spotlight on this wonderful nation and helping agents book more FIT clients there.”
