Even the finns are not the most welcoming people in the world, they are always happy to meet new people and welcome new guests (with their motorhomes) to their city. I suppose the uniquenes comes from the authentic feel of it. Finns don´t have meaningless gestures or polite manners that does not actually mean anything.

Yes, Scandinavian summer is not the longest but the archipelago is the most beautiful in the world. Helsinki city alone has over 300 islands and over 100km of shoreline. Motorhome is perfect way to explore at least some of them.
No fancy tricks but honest food, wild and pure. Definately local! There are plenty of small outdoor markets where you can find delicious ingredients to prepare gourmet food in your motorhome.
Finnish design is well know around the world. Collect your Alvar Aalto furnitures of Iittala glass products from Helsinki downtown. Finland is also home for Angry birds and Moomins.
