What to do while in Helsinki

Since Helsinki is located along the water, there are numerous opportunities for boat trips, kayaking and more. Must-visits in the city include the Helsinki Cathedral, and the design district for the best of Scandinavian design, including the Kamppi Chapel of Silence and Lonna Island. A weekend drive to Nuuksio National Park is a must, and so is a visit to the 18th-Century Seurasaari’s Open-Air Museum.  

Winter in Helsinki

Winter in Helsinki ushers in annual exhibitions, concerts, festivals, and sports events. Enjoy the Winter Sports Fair at the Helsinki Far Center and more. Helsinki has numerous wood-heated saunas that are open to the public, and if you are brave enough, you can try a bit of ice swimming to cool yourself down after the hot sauna. Book an SUV with all-wheel drive and visit the UNESCO Fortress of Suomenlinna and go skiing or walk across the frozen Toolonlahti Bay.
