When is the best time to book a flight to Finland?

Which day is cheapest to fly to Finland?

At the moment, Sunday is the most economical day to take a flight to Finland. Friday is likely to be the most costly.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Finland?

At the moment, flights at midday are likely to offer the best value for money for your Finland trip. A flight in the afternoon will more often than not be of higher cost.

Finland offers travellers untouched landscapes, stunning isolation, a stylish capital city and of course, saunas – about two million of them, for a population of 5.3 million. There’s more than one mobile phone per head of the population too. Nokia is the Finnish brand.

Finland has 35 national parks – from the Gulf of Finland to Lapland. It is also the land of thousands of lakes and islands. There are 187,888 lakes (larger than 500 sq m) and 179,584 islands. A fantastic destination for an outdoors holiday, activities on offer include Nordic skiing, yachting, cruises and kayaking. Bird-watching is popular and elk, reindeer and hare are all common game.

Under the concept of Everyman’s Rights, the Finns have extensive freedom to roam around the countryside, but with these rights come responsibilities. Travellers stepping off Finland flights will discover just how seriously the Finnish take these responsibilities. The countryside is pristine. In wintertime, Finland’s immaculate snow-covered forests, illuminated by a pale golden sun, are Christmas-card beautiful. In Lapland, at the far north of Finland, the Aurora Borealis is seen in winter. Lapland is also the home of Father Christmas and a popular day-trip destination for families in the run up to Christmas.

Finland climate

There’s a reason you’ll find cheap flights to Finland in the winter – the weather is bitterly cold. The capital city, Helsinki, is on the southern coast and has milder summer and winters. Note that the sun doesn’t completely set for 73 days in the summer, and barely rises above the horizon in the winter.

When is the best time to fly to Finland?

Peak Season:

Understandably, in a country where the winter is so dark, the most popular time for tourists to seek Finland flights and visit is during the summer months (May-September). There are exceptions, the month of December in the run-up to Christmas is popular with those coming to see Father Christmas in his natural habitat. The Northern Lights are most likely to be seen in September-October and March-April.

Off Season:

You’ll find travel deals in the winter months, though some major cities, such as Helsinki are year-round destinations.

Getting around Finland

Finland is a very large country. If you’re travelling long distances then a plane is by far the quickest option. There are a couple of airlines offering domestic Finland flights, including Finnair and Blue 1. About 20 destinations within the country are served by air.

The train service is efficient and covers a very good distance, though buses are necessary if visiting more remote towns. Both are reasonably priced and comfortable.

The road system is excellent. Cars are available to hire throughout the country.

How long is the flight to Finland?

For flights to Finland from Hong Kong (HKG), your main port of entry will be Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport (HEL). To reach any other cities, you will need to fly through Helsinki. The flight time from Hong Kong to Helsinki can range from 9h 50min to 18h 50min, depending on stopovers. Helsinki is the capital of Finland and lies on the south coast. You can also fly to the former Finnish capital Turku (TKU) via Helsinki in 17h 20min to 21h 25min.

Where can you get direct flights to Finland from?

You can find Finland flight deals direct from Hong Kong (HKG) to Helsinki (HEL) with Finnair. There are also cheap flights to Finland with Turkish Airlines that stopover in Istanbul (IST). Other options are with British Airways via London Heathrow (LHR), with KLM via Amsterdam (AMS), Lufthansa via Frankfurt (FRA) and Air France via Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG). You can also fly to Turku via Helsinki from Hong Kong.

What is the best way to travel around Finland?

Finland is a well-organised and connected country. You can travel by air, road or rail. Driving in Finland is a pleasure because the roads are good and the traffic is minimal. All cities have a regular bus service and Helsinki has the metro and tram as well. Every major city in Finland is connected by train, as well as many smaller towns. Valtion Rautatiet operates the train system in Finland. There are various types of trains, such as the high-speed Pendolino and the Intercity (IC), which has facilities such as family compartments, a play space for children, phone booths and smoking booths. As an example, you can travel from Helsinki to Rovaniemi in 12h on a train called the Santa Claus Express, and from Helsinki to Turku or Tampere by train in about three hours. For longer routes, there are sleeper trains. You can also fly from Helsinki to all major and some minor cities of Finland.

What are some things to do in Finland?

In Helsinki, invest in some reindeer hide or wooden cups at Market Square, take a walk through the old wooden neighbourhoods of Käpylä, Vallila and Kumpula, and then have a break to sit in peace in the wooden, circular Kamppi Chapel of Silence. For a day trip, take a ferry over to the fortress islands of Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or visit the medieval town of Porvo and pick up souvenirs at the old warehouse by the railway station. Go berry-picking an hour outside of Helsinki at Nuuksio National Park, where ‘Everyman’s right’ allows you to wander anywhere and pick anything. Take a boat ride through the Turku Archipelago or go hiking in Koli National Park and admire the surrounding lakes and forest. In the Lakeland area, join the locals in a sauna followed by a swim in an ice lake. Finland has more than 3 million saunas and 188,000 lakes. In Lapland, meet the real Santa at his office in Rovaniemi, visit the Elf School and cross the Arctic Circle via an underground tunnel. Experience a husky or reindeer-powered sled ride and, most importantly, stay in a glass igloo and view the northern lights.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Finland?

Hong Kong passport holders must apply for a visa. Required documents are: a visa application, a colour photograph, a passport and ID card valid for at least three months after the date of arrival, worldwide travel insurance for the duration of the trip with a minimum coverage of €30,000 (covering medical expenses, hospital treatment and repatriation), a full itinerary, return flight reservations, proof of accommodation for your entire stay, a letter of employment/studies on paper with official letterhead, stamped and dated, and proof of monetary supply (three months’ bank statements).

What is good to know if travelling to Finland?

  • Vibrant Helsinki is growing in popularity as a tourist destination. It’s a cultural city with museums, galleries, theatre and some excellent restaurants. Less well known, however, are its beaches. If visiting in summertime, and the weather is good, pack your swimming clothes and head for one of the many beaches.
  • Some of the more unusual events in Finland take place in the winter months. Reindeer racing, for example, takes place in northern Finland between February and April. The races consist of six reindeer, each pulling a skier, competing to reach the finishing line first. Though the sport is popular in Finland, the world record is currently held by a Norwegian.
  • Lots of winter sports, naturally, revolve around ice. Try your skills at ice-fishing, where a hole is cut into the ice and a line dangled through it, or, for the braver, ice swimming. Again, holes are cut into the thick ice, but this time it is people who go through to the water below and not fishing lines. If this makes you too cold, not to fear, there will almost certainly be a sauna nearby in which you can warm up.
  • For a more child-friendly reindeer experience, take your family to visit Father Christmas and his reindeer in Lapland. Many tours – ranging from one day to longer – are available and can be booked from most of the main towns.
  • Moomin World is the biggest theme park in the country. Dedicated to the Moomins, created by Finnish author Tove Jansson, the park is situated on an island and contains such delights as “Snork’s pancake factory” and the Moominhouse, where you can meet all the Moomins. The park is located close to Turku, about 193km from Helsinki.
  • If you want to take an unusual souvenir home, Finland is the place to shop. Reindeer hides, soapstone or birchwood mugs, fur and, of course, more conventionally, a huge array of design products.
