Not anytime in the near future. I just heard Norway is keeping their border closed to tourism for the whole of 2020.

can you give some sources please, that is contrary to what is discussed in the public?
In addition, there are two things: processing visas and keeping borders "open".

It really depends on the country, and not much is clear so far.
At the latest 14./16. June is the next step of opening is expected, but this is might just open borders with Estonia and Norway and a few other EU countries.
Tourism from non-EU countries also depends on what will be decided at the EU level, Finland alone cannot decide on that.
In practice I would expect that any rules will take into account the COVID-19 situation in the country you are coming from.

In addition, there are two kinds of borders: internal borders with other EU/Schengen countries and external borders with other countries.

Tourism from Finland to Norway is expected to be possible this summer, but not tourism from Russia to Norway.
