For the second year, Finland has been voted “the happiest country in the world”. And I’m not surprised, Finland is well-known for having the most beautiful landscapes in the world and an incredible connection to nature.
What’s the best way to learn more about a country? By spending time with the locals.
And today, Visit Finland is giving the opportunity to 8 people to learn from the best and discover the secret of their happiness.
In order to prove this, 8 ordinary Finns have transformed themselves “as happiness guides”. They are really eager to share more about their connection to nature and the art of relaxation.
Read this example of Linda & Niko, two Finns who signed up as “happiness guides” :
“They want to invite you for a visit to their lighthouse island this summer. You will be introduced to the simplicity of Archipelago life, surrounded by friendly, caring people and harsh, beautiful nature. They will take you on a sailing trip under sunny skies to visit some islet close by and enjoy an outdoor meal prepared right on the spot. You will be staying at their marine-themed red cottage and may even spend a night tenting on an islet.”
The hosts live in Helsinki, around lakes, Lapland or the Finnish archipelago, in the south-west of the country. This will allow each winner to discover different parts of Finland.
Registration is open until 21 April and participants will be invited to travel to Finland during this summer 2019.
If you want to apply, conditions are relatively simple:
1. Apply via the link here https://rentafinn.com/
2. Make a short video to introduce yourself, talk about your connection with nature and why you want to visit Finland.
3. Important note = You need to speak and understand English (because the video has to be done in English)
It’s really a great opportunity to discover Finland with a local and live a unique experience so do not hesitate to participate 🙂
