Best Time to Visit

Although Finland is an ultimate wintertime destination, those seeking more pleasant weather are advised to visit in the summertime (June to August), with temperatures peaking around 25°C in July. The coldest months are January and February, when considerable amount of snow is also to be expected. Spring tends to be the driest season of the year.

Passport / Visa

Finland can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend that you contact the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travellers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.
