Between slides and castles in Aurina Valley

The rock gym, the double slide for competitions, the giant trampoline, the pampering loungers. And we could continue, because there are so many attractions designed for the small guests of the AMONTI & LUNARIS Wellnessresort of Cadipietra (Bolzano, Italy) in Aurina Valley.

Sleep in an igloo in Finnish Lapland: once in your life emotion

I’m gonna be all the way out there, all the way fucking out there. Just on my own. You know, no fucking watch, no map, no ax, no nothing. No nothing. Just be out there. Just be out there in it. You know, big mountains, rivers, sky, game. Just be out there in it, you know? In the wild. (Into the wild, 2007)

Sleeping in an igloo. A dream just for kids?

Visit Northern Finland: Oulu, the coast and the Gulf of Bothnia

Northern Finland has variegated traits: the atmosphere is rather rural and becomes almost remote towards the border with Russia, overlooking the Gulf of Bothnia you begin to breathe a more cosmopolitan and maritime air.

That’s how after Karelia, Kajaani, Rovaniemi and Lapland, we discovered another face of Finland, visiting Oulu, Finland’s fourth largest city, boasting a Swedish past and that is now a favorite destination for thousands of tourists and national and international business travellers.Read More

Scandinavian design in Helsinki: Design district, shopping destinations and a culinary stop

If you think Scandinavia is the home of design, you’re not mistaken. But if you think Finland has a marginal role, well, this time you’re wrong!

In the end, the sense of design is just that, in everyday life! Read More

What to see in Turku in 24 hours: Museums, restaurants, hotels and relaxation…

If they call it the Paris of Finland there is a reason!

Turku, Finnish capital during Swedish domination, has Paris’s sparkling atmosphere, certainly less composed than other Finnish cities. It is young, thanks to the many students attending the university, dynamic, crossed by the river Aurajoki that, just like the Seine, marks the rhythm of bars, restaurants, cruises and nightlife.

Turku has left a special place in our heart, perhaps a little nostalgia because it was the last stage of BlogTour dedicated to Finland, perhaps because we could not devote to this beautiful city the time we wanted. And that surely it would have deserved.Read More
