| 3 min read

Once you get to Finland, consider planning your trip so that you can cover as many towns as possible. Like most capital cities, Helsinki does not represent the entire country. If you want to understand the culture, talk to the locals who live far away from the capital city, so that you can see how life is in smaller towns. If you’re worried that you won’t be able to find accommodation outside of Helsinki, check out all the options below.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 04, 2024.
