Helsinki

Cool and quirky, Helsinki is a unique city with a dynamic energy. Though the streets can be quiet during the bitterly cold winters, spring’s arrival sees the locals jump on their bicycles; flowering parks fill with picnicking folk; and pavement cafés buzz with alfresco diners.


Wrap up in cosy layers and get ready to experience the joy of winter holidays in Helsinki. Get your skates on at the Icepark, then warm up with a steaming hot cup of coffee at a heated café tent. Or unwind with a sauna session at one of the city’s many spa hotels. Gaze at magnificent Art Nouveau architecture and admire the twisting steel form of the Hiltunen sculpture at beautiful Sibelius Park. Indulge in some retail therapy at the iconic Stockmann department store or spend a summer’s afternoon stretched out on the sands of Hietaniemi Beach. Then dine on Finnish cuisine with a Michelin-starred twist, before soaking up the atmosphere at a bohemian bar.
