Fishing in Finland

The fish are BIG in Finland. Yes, Finland is the best – in every possible sense!!!

Don’t believe us? Well, then you really should read this short extract from a travel brochure from the late 1920s:

”No other country in the world can provide such opportunitiesfor boating, fishing, bathing and camping. Finland has over thirty-five thousand lakes, and the number of islands is uncountable.

Look at the map. It looks almost as though someone had split the inkbottle over it, leaving scarcely a corner untouched.

The rivers, lakes and rapids abound with fish. The scenery has a charm all its own, which is not to be found in any other part of the world.

And the light summer nights … these have to be experienced … one cannot describe them … but they are probably the most wonderful of all Finland’s attractions.”

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.
