While Finland has a reputation for being an expensive place to visit, there are plenty of ways to save, such as planning a trip during the right season. Unlike hotels in most Western European countries, accommodations in Finland tend to be most expensive during the winter months, especially in northern Finland. To save money, travel during summer and look for alternative lodging options within the country -- self-catering cabins or campsites in the countryside are good bets. City travelers staying in Helsinki can find plenty of affordable or free activities, from biking through the city to sunbathing on local beaches.
