Summer is the perfect time to get the most out of Helsinki. It is also maybe the best time to get most out of Helsinkians - long days and white summer nights make people live like there is no tomorrow. The little islands and rocky beaches, extraordinary public saunas along the seaside, the sunny summer terraces and cafes...they all come to life during these beautiful, magical months.
