Wild Taiga has been selected as one of the most attractive destination to visit in 2017 by European Best Destinations. By the qualities of its services and offers, Wild Taiga participates actively to the attractiveness of Finland and whole Europe.
- We are proud to have on board, for the first time, an example of sustainable tourism region which offers unique experiences. As travellers are also looking for authenticity, it was obvious for us to invite Wild Taiga to this competition, explains European Best Destinations executive director Maximilien Lejeune from Brussels.
Mr Lejeune continues, if Copenhagen won the prize in 2011, and if Helsinki, Stockholm, Bergen already tried to reach the first step of this European podium during the last past 8 years, in 2017 Wild Taiga will be the only destination to represent the Northern Europe. As this is the biggest competition of tourism in Europe, it is a great opportunity to highlight Wild Taiga to the world and let them know the beauties and richness of this amazing region.
20 destinations in competition for three weeks of online voting including Madrid, Athens, Brussels, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, San Sebastian, Sozopol, Stari Grad, Porto, Pari, Boifacio, Vienna, Basel and of course Wild Taiga!
A total of more than 2 millions of voters for our past editions, from all other the world. We expect more than 200,000 voters will vote for this 8th edition of this EU competition and choose their European Best Destination 2017.
