Daughter of the Baltic

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.

Osaka, Japan to Helsinki is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Osaka to Helsinki, you'll gain 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Osaka in December: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 37°F and lows are around 27°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to catch the flight back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
