Whenever I fly into the Helsinki-Vantaa airport (HEL) I never cease to admire the quiet and clean airport interior. The floors made of wood bring a genuine high quality feel to the airport.
When we arrive to Helsinki we normally have friends pick us up at the airport. This saves from from paying for a bus or taxi and is more convenient. The airport is close to the city of Helsinki. Hop on a bus or take a 20-minute taxi (the more expensive option, naturally) to get to your hotel.
