Autumn in Helsinki slowly begins during the month of September and moves well into November when the Winter begins. Fall (Autumn) is the perfect time for any nature lover to plan a trip to Helsinki because you can still enjoy walking by the beach and enjoy the ever-changing autumnal colours when you stop by the local parks. Check out why this season, in particular, is the best time to visit Helsinki, without fail!
Enjoy Outdoor Activities
As the bright colours of nature begin to change from a vibrant red to a rusty orange, you can use that time to visit the Nuuksio or Sipoonkorppi National Park in Helsinki. Also, the Uutela Nature Park is a beautiful spot for birdwatching while the coastal beach is perfect to get the scenic view. You can also go fishing for the Baltic Herring or explore the local market. Besides that, canoeing is also a pleasant experience in solitude or with a partner as you gaze around at the foliage and soak in the crisp cool air.
Taste Seasonal Food
One of the best times of the year to truly enjoy a traditional local meal is when the temperatures begin to drop and the nights start getting colder. Besides pumpkin soup or a classic pumpkin spiced latte, there are several comfort meals like stews and casseroles you can enjoy during your travels during the Fall season. Be sure to visit the local restaurants and ask for their speciality or favourite to try something outside your comfort zone. You won’t regret it!
Relax and Rejuvenate
Fall season, across the board is one of the cosiest seasons of the year! You are transitioning between summer & the winter months; nature is winding down, and so should you! As the city with innumerable spas that are there for you at every corner, take your pick and unwind! You can check out a spa at your hotel, or just head to a public spa to rest and mingle. There is so much fun in experiencing new things in Helsinki, especially during the cooler months of the year!
