How to spend a winter day in Helsinki?
When the celsius drop far below zero, the sun comes out to play in the late morning and the sea is completely frozen – some might want to stay home under warm blankets, but us Finns find it the best time of the year to go enjoy some outdoor activities.
The magic of Helsinki is it’s perfect way of combining a city with nature only a hop away from the bustling city center. Your perfect day in Helsinki can just as well mean shopping with friends and going to your favourite cafe to enjoy a cup of coffee or hiking by the seaside on the city’s several islands.
Myself, I’m the kind who feels most home by the beach in the heat of the sun drinking a fresh coconut, but trust me when I say, this city is at its most beautiful in the coldest of winter day. There’s something so exotic and enchanted in our Helsinki home mixed with a bit of east and west.
