QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • How many days are enough to travel in Finland?

    Finland is a big country with so much to see and do, so we recommend 7 to 10 days to experience as much as possible. At a minimum, you will want to spend 5 days in the country. For more information check out our guide on how many days to spend in Finland.

  • What is the best month to visit Finland?

    It depends upon what you are looking forward to seeing and doing in Finland. But summer is widely regarded as the best time to visit Finland, especially June and July due to the warmer weather. If you want to ski and see the Northern Lights, winter months like December and January are the best.

  • What is the best way to get to Finland?

    The best way to get to Finland is by flight. Helsinki Airport has a number of international daily flights connecting to and from all across the world.

  • How much does a tour to Finland cost?

    On average, travelers should expect to budget USD 125 per day. Finland is certainly an expensive country, but it is well worth the price.
