Helsinki, Finland – Europe #30 [VIDEO]

Despite coming from Sweden, a neighboring country to Finland, and despite the fact that they even speak Swedish as a second language and that the country was once part of Sweden – I never had any real plans on visiting Finland.

It seemed like a beautiful country, and the thought of visiting northern Finland and go dog sledding would be an experience of a life-time, but it also seemed so… distant…

We hope you enjoyed our Helsinki video – this is the LAST video from our Europe Train Challenge, but stay tuned for next week when we continue onto Estonia and explore more of Eastern Europe.

    I’ve in Helsinki en August and I think we did the same tours. But I must confess that after spending a week in Sweden, Helsinki ended up being boring… That’s because I really fell in love with Sweden. ;-)

      hehe I can understand that a bit – Sweden has so many wonderful things to offer as well :) if I had to pick, I would also prefer spending more time traveling in Sweden.

    Very nice. I spent a weekend in Helsinki back in 2009 when the city was empty, beginning of April. Did you stop by the Sibellius monument? Eat some reindeer? I think it’s a great little city for a weekend.
