What To Know

  • It's difficult to predict Scandinavian climate, so bring clothes for all weather conditions.
  • Finland's currency is Euro, however, credit cards are widely accepted.
  • If you need some local cash, it is best to use an ATM. This is true for all European countries, except for Hungary. When you withdraw cash from an ATM, the currency conversion will be done automatically by your bank, and the exchange rate will usually be much better than if you exchange currency at a local bank.
  • The tour program includes some walking tours, we recommend you to pack comfortable shoes.
