Is Finland an expensive country?
Finland is considered to be an incredibly expensive country to visit, on average you will need around 120 euros a day during your stay for a low budget trip, eating at cheap restaurants outside of the tourist areas and staying at budget hotels.
What is the best time of year to go to Finland?
The best time to visit Finland for winter activities is in January, avoiding the coldest months of the year whilst also allowing you to enjoy winter activities such as seeing the Northern Lights.
However, if you prefer warmer weather, early summer is best as the temperature starts to drop in August. To fully relax and enjoy your stay, you may want to consider getting travel insurance to ensure that you're fully covered.
What is the best time of year to see the Northern Lights in Finland?
The Northern lights can be seen in Finland between mid-August and April, with the best viewing times being at either end of the season. The best time is around the equinox as the solar wind increases then.

Top 5 things to see and do in Finland
1. See the Northern Lights
Stretching deep into the Arctic circle, Finland is the perfect place to see this infamous colourful light display and put a tick on the bucket list. If you are less of a winter person, the northernmost parts of Finland have a midnight sun during the summer, where the sun lasts all night long.
2. Visit Suomenlinna Fortress
One of Finland's seven UNESCO sites, Suomenlinna fortress stands on six linked islands off the Finnish coast. An important military base during the 18th century, it is now perfect for day trips from Helsinki.
3. Discover the Moomins
There are a large number of attractions to explore in relation to these fictional national treasures. From Moominland in Nantaali to the recently opened Moomin café in Lapland, there is a host of activities available for the young and old to cherish fond memories of our favourite literary characters.
4. Find amethysts at the Lampivaari Amethyst mine
You will be taught how to dig for your own amethysts at this 200 million-year-old attraction, taking a snowmobile or hiking up to the old mine, the last amethyst mine in Europe.
5. Explore the islands
Finland is known as the "land of a thousand lakes," so island hopping is perfect here, with over 18000 islands to discover, some of which are uninhabited.
