WHAT TO PACK

what-to-pack

Sunglasses - A good pair of shades is absolutely essential accessory in a land where the sun doesn't set for a good portion of the year.

 

An eye mask - The midnight sun can wreak havoc on your sleeping patterns. In the event that your room doesn't have blackout curtains, an eye mask just might save your bacon!

 

A raincoat - There are countries with unpredictable weather, then there's Finland. Conditions change from hour to hour and showers are a common occurrence even in summer!

 

An adapter plug - Finland uses European-style 2-pin plug sockets, with a voltage of 230V. Bring a step-down transformer if you want to use appliances that run on 110V.

 

Sensible footwear - Whether you're pounding the streets of Helsinki, exploring the Fortress of Suomenlinna or checking out Ranua Zoo, you'll be dong a lot of walking here so a pair of comfy shoes is a must.
