ZAP Wanderlust: Finland


Best known for its Northern Lights and year-round Santa Claus Village, Zapwater coordinated a trip with 5 Chicago-based bloggers and photographers to promote the relaunch of Finnair’s seasonal service to and from Chicago, along with establishing Visit Finland as a top travel destination. The team immersed themselves in Finnish culture through food, excursions and sight-seeing in Helsinki and Turku. Thanks to Finnair, Visit Finland and Visit Turku for hosting and providing accommodations for the entire team!
