I'm currently looking into a holiday in Finland, next July/August but I'm concerned about mosquitoes. Madeline, did you come across many while you were there? (I realise this thread is a bit old but I decided to search Mumsnet for info, always find everything I need here!)
I was! It was incredible, it depends, what you want to see or discovered. lapalnd is beautiful, even in summer! I spent last summer in small town called Kuopio, and two days in Helsinky. Freind told me, that Rovaniemi is too very nice.
