Finland around New Years Eve - Will there be natural ice ice-skating?
October 31, 2013 1:57 AM Subscribe
We are going to be in Berlin for Christmas and thought perhaps we would get a cheap flight to Helsinki and hang out in southern Finland for a week after Christmas.
a) where should we go around there and how? (car, train, buses?)
b) what is the likelihood of natural ice ice-skating in late-Dec (or failing that cross-country skiing)?

Looking for something more than a "city holiday" so were probably not intending to stay in Helsinki. Its just a cheap flight destination.
or we could possibly fly back to London via some other airport so suggestions for how to get to Stockholm of Copenhagen from Helsinki?
We were thinking of trying to go way up north to Lapland etc but its seems like it might be very expensive / not so easy in December. Has anyone been up the north?
