What is the secret to happiness? It seems the Finns have mastered this as the Nordic country ranks as the world’s happiest country for the sixth year in a row. And you have the chance to learn about happiness through a free four-day trip to a serene and luxurious resort in Finland this June. Here’s how you can do it:


The Happiest Country in the World

According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Solution Network’s annual World Happiness Report, Finland ranked first with a score of 7.889 out of the 156 countries that participated in the survey. This report measures how happy citizens perceive themselves to be and is based on six key factors that contribute to happiness: social support, income, freedom, healthy life expectancy, perceptions of corruption, and generosity.


Masterclass of Happiness

So what are the secrets behind Finnish happiness? The Masterclass of Happiness is a four-day experience at Kuru Resort, a private retreat center in the Finnish Lakeland region. Winners will experience a blissful Finnish summer and get to stay in an exclusive private villa.

During the retreat, the 10 participants will be introduced to their inner Finn and learn to build skills that will help sustain a balanced lifestyle in connection with nature. Themes include exercise in forests and lakes, nature crafts, music, food for the soul and body, and the Finnish way of life. These will be taught by Finnish experts who will be assigned as personal coaches during the retreat.


How can I apply?

Getting a chance to win a free trip to Finland can be done in two steps:

  1. Sign up using the form at the end of this web page. You must be at least 18 years old to apply.
