Montreal, Canada to Helsinki is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Montreal to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Montreal in June: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 21°C and lows are around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Rovaniemi.
