Vantaa

3.9
Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland. Unfortunately, many of them rush through Vantaa on their way to the capital, overlooking the cultural delights this compact metropolis has to offer. A renowned interactive science center, planetarium, IMAX theater, modern art museum, and several shopping centers provide plenty of entertainment for all ages. Visitors who are more outdoor-orientated can embark on hiking trails and wildlife tours at the large nature center. Be sure to sample some Finnish delicacies at local restaurants, which are unlikely to be crowded with tourists. When using our Finland holiday builder app to make an itinerary online, Vantaa holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Vantaa

Part of Helsinki's greater metropolitan area, Vantaa offers an ideal base for exploring the Finnish capital while giving you easy access to the Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport. Most of Vantaa's local hotels are part of large international chains and are clustered right around the entrance to the airport, making this area a solid option for a quick trip. You can easily get from Vantaa to Helsinki either by car or via the local and regional bus network. For something a little quieter, find a hotel in Vantaa's suburban core, which offers train access to the capital.
