What we have created

Travel Research (inc. TAK Border Research)

We interview annually 20 000 foreing visitors at 12 different border stations, and 1000's of Finnish travelers, visiting Estonia, at ferries between Finland and Estonia.

This way we gather information, not only about travelers who visit Finland (profiles and motives), but also where these people travel in Finland, and how much money they use.

Understanding the tourism sector in Finland is the main goal of this reseach!

Tourism Income and Employment

By utilizing a variety of statistics and our own research data, we calculate tourism income and number of jobs created by tourism, for each municipality and province in Finland.

We use the Nordic method, in which, on top of traveler surveys, also companies are queried about the structure of their income between tourist and local residents.

All results for different areas are comparable in this research!

Travel Statistics and Other Travel Related Surveys

We like to share our knowledge, and publish the vast majority of the travel statistics we hold, in our Travel Statistics service:


We also, from time to time, approach travelers by email surveys and online panels to deepen our understanding in the motives of tourism.
