Finland is the best destination in the world for wildlife travel, according to Global Wildlife Travel Index for 2019.

Finland was chosen from among 107 countries, and they were compared in eight different sectors.

Finland scored best thanks to its high levels of environmental sustainability, its unique and varied diversity of species, beautiful natural landscapes and conservation efforts.

According to the index, these results come as Finland has continued to see a rapid increase in tourism levels over the last year.
