Book 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.

Fly to Helsinki with British Airways and discover an electrifying urban space entwined with the Baltic Sea’s inlets and islands. Explore a city that’s overflowing with modern and eye-catching architecture, plus a whole hoard of delicious dining and drinking experiences. Spend a day visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and the Design Museum before exploring the astonishing rock-carved church, the Temppeliaukio. Once you’ve worked up an appetite visit one of Helsinki’s many covered markets to try some seasonal dishes – eating locally sourced, sustainably farmed and foraged ingredients is typical to Finnish cuisine.
