The rural areas in Finland have many cultural and nature elements which are of interest to those tourists who live in the urban areas of Central-Europe. However, the offering of touristic services that would reflect the authentic Finnish lifestyle is still quite poor. Potential customers often find it difficult to locate and to buy the services that would interest them the most.
