Visit Finland has launched an online training portal for travel agents.

The new platform is designed to help build knowledge of the country, with agents able to become experts across different areas of Finland by completing the four modules.

Modules include ‘Introduction to Finland’ which has facts and figures, reasons to visit, how to get to Finland and where to stay; ‘Regions of Finland’ which outlines the four major regions Helsinki, Lapland, Archipelago and Lakeland; ‘Four seasons in Finland’ looking at its offering at different times of the year; and ‘How to book Finland’, which provides tour operators contacts, information on the Finnair Stopover programme and details on Visit Finland.

Caroline Stanton, sales and marketing manager said: “We are thrilled to be launching this fantastic new resource that will train the next generation of Finnish experts.

“Finland is such a beautiful country we want people to be able to learn why Finland is the happiest country in the world.”

The new resource has been made live at finlandtravelexpert.com.
