For flights Helisinki, the Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport is a light, airy, and modern place to arrive in the Finnish capital city. Over a dozen airlines are represented at the airport which is just 19 kilometers north of the town center. That’s 11 miles is you’re arriving from the United States.
For tourists arriving on flights Helisinki car hire desks are located in the Terminal 2 arrivals hall. The normal traffic in Helsinki is not nearly as bad as that of other European capital cities because Helsinki transportation planners created a series of roads that encircle the city and slowly siphon cars to their destination without the gridlock that urban dwellers are so familiar with. However, parking in Helsinki can be quite expensive. You might only wish to hire a car if you plan on taking trips outside the city frequently.
Helsinki’s public transportation system consists of buses, night buses, ferries, a metro and trams operating all through the city. Tourists will especially want to hop aboard the 3T sightseeing streetcar, which passes by the area’s major attractions. Multi-day passes are available. And this is the easiest and most affordable way to get around in Helsinki. One of the best ways to see nearby destinations such as as Stockholm, Riga, Latvia and Rostock, Germany is by taking one of the many boat trips available to these destinations. Helsinki offers a wide range of transportation options for tourists.
