International tourist arrivals grew by 4.4% (50 million tourists) in 2015 to reach a total of 1,184 million in 2015. This marks the 6th consecutive year of above-average growth, with international arrivals increasing by 4% or more every year since the post-crisis year of 2010.
The outlook for 2016 remains positive, though growth is expected to stay at a slightly lower level as compared to the previous two years. Currently comprising only 2.5% of GDP, Finland’s travel sector has great potential for growth, (the EU average is 6%).
