London to Helsinki
Say “cheerio” to The Big Smoke and prepare to greet the Daughter of the Baltic when you step on your London to Helsinki flight.
If you enjoyed boat rides along the River Thames, you’ll love cruising around the Gulf of Finland. Did you have fun at the London Eye? Soak up the views from the SkyWheel Helsinki too. Swap the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey for landmarks like Helsinki Cathedral, the Sibelius Monument and Finlandia Hall. Where London has Hyde Park (and others) for relaxation, Helsinki boasts Hietaniemi Beach. Switch fish and chips and roast dinners for Baltic herring and pea soup.
Although both cities have similar seasons, passengers may notice a slight chill when stepping off flights from London to Helsinki. Pack an extra jumper and jacket for the slightly cooler temperatures.
