At not even 500 years old, the city of Helsinki is a mere pup compared with some of its European neighbours, but this bright and breezy metropolis – the capital of Finland – has a small-town charm and throws open its arms to welcome visitors.
Experience the reception for yourself when you check in at your ideal Helsinki hotel...
Located in southern Finland and sitting prettily on the Gulf of Finland, Helsinki is a small and concentrated mix of museums, churches and lush open spaces. Running in either direction from the pretty harbour city is a jumble of coastline and a smattering of islands, both of which really come alive in spring and summer when nature's wonders reappear from the harsh depths of winter.
Helsinki is one of the northernmost capitals in the world, and in winter you'll experience extreme cold and long days of darkness. It's a fascinating and somewhat eerie destination. It's summer when tourism really heats up, along with the daily temperatures, and you'll find plenty to see and do during the abundance of sunshine hours (it doesn't really get dark in late June and early July).
This is a popular destination throughout the year and Helsinki accommodation should be booked as early as possible to secure the cheapest rates. Summer is the busiest tourism period, so if you’re hoping to book cheap hotels in Helsinki in July and August it’s wise to act fast.
