Helsinki is the essence of sophistication. Entwined in the sublime nature of the Baltic’s bays, Helsinki’s stylish boulevards and innovative architecture impress with their ground-breaking design.

From the rock-carved Temppeliaukio Church to the wooden cocoon of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, the city’s structures provoke thought and appreciation. Beyond Helsinki’s sophisticated buildings, adventures are inevitable in the extensive parks, surrounding forests and beaches.
OROKO Top Tip
A luxury holiday to Finland isn’t complete without a private guided tour of Turku, the country’s former capital. Whilst in the city, be sure to pay a visit to the 13th-century Turku Castle, which was the encampment of the governor representing the King of Sweden and his soldiers before it was turned into a prison and storage space of the Swedish crown. Then head to the captivating open-air Luostarinmaki Handicraft Museum.
Best Time to Visit
From June to August, when temperatures are warmer, days are longer and the blossoming landscape is at its prettiest, is generally the best time to visit Finland. Outdoor activities and events such as the Midnight Sun Film Festival and Midsummer Festival are also plentiful at this time. However, if you visit in winter, the country transforms into a magical winter wonderland and is the perfect time to go cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, on reindeer rides and to see the spectacular Northern Lights.
A light show like no other, the spellbinding Northern Lights are without a doubt, a must-see during your luxury holiday to Finland. The perfect place to experience the Aurora Borealis is in Saariselka, where you can sleep under the stars in a glass-roofed cabin. For the ultimate Arctic experience, combine the Northern Lights with a guided snowmobile safari, an exciting tour of the peaceful and stunningly beautiful landscape.
