About Helsinki

Flights to Helsinki

Cheap flights to Helsinki are easy to find with Expedia. This unique destination offers a wealth of natural beauty as well as all the traditional tourism activities one can expect from this historic city.

Finland's capital is located in the south and is also the largest city in Finland. Helsinki's geography closely influences the city's climate and being close to the Baltic Sea and with the humid influences of the Gulf Stream, Helsinki has a surprisingly humid climate that more closely resembles southern countries in Europe.

Despite the fairly remote nature of the city's location, flying to Helsinki is not as difficult as you might think. Many airlines provide frequent and affordable flights to this gorgeous and unique city. Flights to Helsinki are even more worthwhile when you consider all there is to enjoy in this magical destination. From warming thermal spas to relaxing day cruises around the Gulf of Bothania, enjoying the breathtaking scenery is well worth the flight to Helsinki all by itself.

Going out in Helsinki can be expensive, however, travellers booking with Expedia will not only be able to save on their flights to Iceland but will also be eligible to save on their hotels in Helsinki and, if necessary, a rental car too.

Hotels in Helsinki accommodate all budgets, so for those tourists wishing to take home a few authentic Icelandic souvenirs, it may be better to opt for some of the more modest options available on Expedia. There is a great range of hotels to choose from with Expedia, and if you book both your hotel and flight to Helsinki together you'll be in for some considerable savings!
