Forget about the summer, it’s still the winter which is Finland’s trump card.

Apart from ski competitions in for example Lahtis and Kuopio it was mainly the State Railways that promoted the Finnish winter, with new travel posters every season. The tourists were to make no mistake: if they were going to Lapland they were to take the night train. No more discussion.

So stop for a moment and drink in the vim of this poster:

Ok, ready?

Now ponder the following key questions (we have helped you by giving you the right answers):

Snow is wonderful? Yes.

Lapland is jaunty? Yes.

Taking the night train to Lapland is great? Yes.

So what are you waiting for? Go north!

Check out over 200 classic Finnish travel posters and read more about all the great Finnish poster artists in the digital version of our book ”Come to Finland” (found in three different editions; in English, French and German). After enjoying the posters a while we believe you are ready to order the real thing: the printed coffee table book.
