    LOL! Reindeer?! Ahem, reindeer only live in the northernmost part of Finland. Imagine a guide to the United States showing caribou on its front cover, since they live in Alaska...:DBut OK, I understand. Many tourists would like to visit Finnish Lapland, the supposed homeland of Santa Claus and his red-nosed reindeer Rudolf. Personally, I would rather associate Finland with the Kalevala, saunas, the koskenkorva, symbolist painting, the duty-free zone of Åland, even more saunas, the Moomins, and unhanged veterans from the Winter War, but YMMV.

    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.

    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.

    I bought this book a year ago now and found it pretty poor! I've been to finland 10 or more times and feel I know the country and its people a lot more than the author of this book!His descriptions of Finnish attitudes and temproment are so stereotyped and dated. Fascinating Museums, Buildings and Shops do not seem to feature! I can not comprehend how some one could produce this kind of book, about such a fascinating and unique place! Finland is a dynamic vibrant and varied place and has a lot more to offer than this guide would suggest! Its a real dissapointment, it does however carry some useful logistical info, trains, hotels/ hostels ect. But most of this info can be found on the net or from the many Tourist Infomation Offices in Finland. I do hope he's done some home work for this edition!

    This must have been my number 20+ lonely planet guide and a real good one maps are very good ,maybe a bit to much focused on Helsinki therefore the rest of Finland's info seemed a little vague.

    I used to be a big fan of lonely planet guide books but this one must be the worst one I've used. One of the top 5 things to do in Helsinki according to this guide is to go get drunk in Tallinn. Plus the fine for not buying you train ticket before boarding is 80 euros not 3 like the book says.
