Travel from London to Helsinki for a holiday with a difference

Whether you're comparing flights from London to Helsinki for a city break with a difference, a romp under the midnight sun or for skiing without the slopes, the Finnish capital will surprise. Crinkle-cut, cute and exceptionally cool, Helsinki has hidden its charms behind the Baltic for centuries. But for visitors today it delivers design chic in its modern skyline, acres of neo-classical eye-candy in its historic heart and Arctic cuisine with plenty of carnivore cuts.

When can I book cheap flights to Helsinki from London?

If Helsinki's charms as a cross-country skiing capital have pulled you in, you're in luck. The prices for London Helsinki flights go pretty low as winter starts to bite in late October. They stay low right through to February – except for a flurry around Christmas. You can go close to the wire, too, picking up cheap airfares as late as 3 weeks before you fly out. The middle of the week wins out as a cheap time to travel, while a night flight shaves a good 10% off your costs.

Arriving at London airport

Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow all have some of the lowest-cost Helsinki-bound airlines flying from them, but Heathrow edges the others out. This west London airport is one of the closest to the capital and is easy to reach. The Heathrow Express train runs from Paddington for £18 return, which is halved if you book in advance. Even cheaper is a £6 single ticket from a central London stop on the Underground's Piccadilly line.

Flying from London to Helsinki

The Finnish capital is 1,100 miles northeast of the UK's, and London Helsinki flights will be aloft for around three hours. A good range of airlines head to this Baltic city, including airBaltic, Austrian and KLM. But the cheapest carriers are national airlines like Finnair and British Airways, who both offer direct flights. Once there, set your watches forwards a couple of hours, as Finland keeps easterly times.

Getting from the airport to Helsinki

Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport (HEL) is where those London to Helsinki planes are headed, which sits 12 miles north of the capital. Most land at Terminal 2. Taxis into town cost as much as €40, but the new train line is much cheaper. Catching either an I-train or a P-train takes 30 minutes to reach the city centre, and costs around €5.

What to do when in Helsinki

Helsinki has a mood for every season. In summer, it's time to stroll around the Design District, to see what's hot, what's cool and what's not. Then pull up a chair in a terrassit – an open-air summer bar – to sip coffee in the afternoon, or vodka later on, as the midnight sun grazes the horizon. In winter, it's the back-country ski routes that beckon, catching views over snow-lit Helsinki from a different angle. And there's always the chance, even here, for a spot of Arctic magic, as the shimmering green curtains of the Northern Lights slink across the star-filled nights.
