My extended family and I are planning a trip to Finland in June 2022 (covid-willing.) The purpose (aside from Finland being awesome) is to take my mother in law there while she's still spry and eager to travel--both her parents were born in Finland.
My question is, given the constraint that we must travel in June (and perhaps into the first week of July) is there a 10 day period that would be best? I've read that Midsummer Eve and Midsummer Day (June 24-25) are both the worst time and the best time to be there. I hope to identify dates and then start mapping out our itinerary, which will include visiting many small towns with family ties as well as time in Helsinki and Tallinn.
We are all experienced European travelers, but aside from my husband's one day stopover in Helsinki years ago none of us have spent time in Finland. Any advice or tips would be very appreciate as we plan this once-in-a-lifetime trip "home" for my sweet mother in law.
