Market Square, Helsinki
Santa Claus Village
The Finnish itinerary is fairly simple, as there are really two main points of interest connected by railway - Helsinki and the towns of Turku or Tampere. However, you can easily include other parts of Scandinavia or Russia, which we recommend doing.
Depending on the length of your trip, and taking geographic proximity into account, the following are our recommended priorities:
3 days: Helsinki
5 days, add: Turku or Tampere
8 days, add: Tallin, Estonia (from Helsinki)
10 - 12 days, add: St. Petersburg, Russia
More: You can very easily save St. Petersburg for last, after Tallin, or return for extra time after finishing your time in Estonia. Also consider ferry to Stockholm (Sweden) from Tallin.
