Top Tips for Winter in Helsinki

You would think that Helsinki would be lulled to sleep by the cold winters and dark nights. In fact, far from hibernating, Helsinki becomes arguably more active and alive - even when covered in a thick blanket of snow.

Swish, swish, swish – the sounds of skis gliding across the snow can be heard everywhere in wintertime. Helsinki is perhaps the only capital city in the world where you can bump into cross-country skiers practically in the city center!

Right in the centre of town next to the Central Railway Station you will find also the Icepark, where you can rent skates and practice your figures to the beat of the music.

Right next to Icepark you will find the stage for you story – five star Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel! Book little extra - a room with private sauna and enjoy the weekend like a true Finn!
