Finland’s unique charm shines through on holidays in Helsinki. Whether you are looking for spas and saunas, or just a city break packed with culture and great nights out – Helsinki has something for everyone.
Travel around the archipelago’s myriad islands, or stroll around the city’s many beautiful parks – especially the famous Esplanadinpuisto park, ideally placed for a summertime picnic. Stroll beautiful streets admiring the wonderful architecture, before stopping for coffee and cake. Or visit the Design District’s hundreds of stores and galleries, which are perfect for style conscious shoppers. Take the kids to the incredible Linnanmäki theme park, or during the long winter, skating at the unmissable Icepark. For those looking for a more relaxing time, warm up at the essential Finnish experience of the evening sauna before hitting the town for a night on the tiles.

An almost-guaranteed white Christmas experience, the Finnish capital is a great choice. Be greeted by an enchanting festive ambiance – with glowing lights, delightful fairs and the aroma of glögi (spiced wine, with a dash of vodka). Traditionally, Christmas in Helsinki is a quiet, family time…but the lead-up, pikkujoulu ‘little Christmas’ provides plenty of festive atmosphere and special yuletide fare. Christmas markets are spread across the city – with the biggest being held at Vanha Ylioppilastalo. Twinkling lights line the main shopping street, Aleksanterinkatu, while carol recitals in Helsinki’s churches provide warmth from the cold, and a magical atmosphere. Stay at the stylish Scandic Paasi to be in the heart of the action.
