Private jet charter and flights to Helsinki

Whether you want to hike through forests, laze on sandy beaches, indulge in sustainably farmed cuisine or explore art nouveau and neo-classical buildings, there’s plenty to do in Helsinki. The city’s main hub of cultural activity is centered round one condensed peninsula, meaning almost everything you’ll want to see and do is within walking distance.
Set your suitcases down at Hotel Haven (member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World) or the 1930s GLO Hotel Art before heading out to see the sights. Your first stop should be the renowned Design Museum, followed by a walking tour of the Design District, where you can peruse boutiques and galleries showcasing locally-produced Nordic glassware, homeware, jewellery and textiles. Stop off for a coffee at Kaffa Roastery, a beautiful café that stocks wonderful designer and vintage items.
Fans of interesting architecture should visit Carl Ludvig Engel’s neo-classical Senate Square’s Helsinki Cathedral, the steel pipe monument dedicated to Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, and the unique Lutheran Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church). Quarried out of a giant piece of solid natural granite, this exceptional masterpiece has a spectacular copper dome and magnificent interior – which, thanks to its incredible acoustics, is also a revered classical music concert venue.
There’s more to this magical city than cultural landmarks and designer shops – further afield are over 300 islands which you can visit on an enchanting day trip. Charter a boat to UNESCO World Heritage Site Suomenlinna, tiny Lonna, the forest trails of Kaunissaari or the intriguing Viking island of Vartiosarri. In the warmer months, when daylight averages 19 out of 24 hours, the islands are perfect for picnics and sunbathing, while in winter the skiing and skating opportunities make these journeys even more magical.
Last but not least, when in Helsinki, relax as the Finns do with an authentic Nordic sauna experience. Popular spots for this traditional pastime include plush waterside venue Löyly and Market Square’s magnificent Allas Sea Pool, both of which also boast refined restaurants for a post-sauna bite to eat.
