Flights to Finland

Beautiful wilderness and vibrant cities make up this cool country. Finland is well-known for its snow-covered scenes, winter activities, reindeer herds and mesmerising Northern Lights. It’s just as wonderful in the summer months – with surprisingly high temperatures, Finnish summers are made of music festivals, art exhibitions, lake cruises and midnight sunshine.

Use our low fare finder to discover the cheapest time to visit Finland. Winter and summer are the most popular times to visit Finland, so book your flights in autumn or spring if you want to save but still enjoy sightseeing and, if you’re lucky, a few glimpses of the Northern Lights. They can sometimes be spotted in Finnish Lapland in early autumn.

The best time to visit Finland depends on what activities you’d like to do during your trip. The winter months are best for those who enjoy winter sports, icy adventures and chasing the extraordinary Northern Lights. If you visit between the end of May and end of July, you’ll enjoy long days of sunshine, with only five to six hours of darkness each day. You can make the most of these warmer and longer days by delving into outdoor activities, like hiking and swimming.

With enough forward planning, you can make your trip to Finland fit any budget. When you’re out and about, look out for lunch deals at restaurants where you can enjoy buffet-style eating for reasonable prices. There are also plenty of market halls – known locally as kauppahalli – where a great range of low-priced snacks and meals are available. You can take part in plenty of outdoors activities for free, from national parks to forests, both in the winter and summer. In the cities you can look out for free museum days which usually happen once a month.

Finland has a fantastic transport system, which means you can travel long distances easily on modern trains, easy-to-use public buses and even ferries connecting the smaller islands to the mainland. You can purchase handy passes to save on travel and get to all your destinations for less. The capital Helsinki is home to the country’s only metro, and there’s also a tram and bus network. You can buy a travel card to get around the city. You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to see more of what Finland has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.
