Toristy is a Finnish company with an international team and outlook. Our brand reflects the experiences you can see and do in Finland. We've taken our brand colours from the magnificent northern lights which you can see very clearly in winter especially in the Lapland area.
We got into this business to help smaller businesses thrive in a tough environment and we're geared up to sell activities, experiences, events and tours, in a white labeled offering on websites with high volumes of travel consumer traffic designed for in-destination sales.
