We have a couple of weeks in southern Finland. Most of the recommendations on here have been for summer. We are looking for recommendations for November. What are your top tips?

First of all, rednikki , you should be aware that the Finns have prepared a banner just for you.

VisitFinland were responsible, I believe, and they offer a good place to start. RentAFinn I'd suggest!

I take it you haven't been to Finland previously. Suomenlinna is an absolute must, no matter what. I've been there on a foggy Helsinki December morning and it was still beautiful.

Visiting a sauna in November is an obvious choice, but I'd also recommend looking for swimming halls. They're very popular and a nice respite from the cold and dark.

Thanks y'all! I should have noted that I've dug deep into the VisitFinland website. For anyone who comes across this in future, RentAFinn is a summer contest that requires an application process; only the winners get to rent a Finn.
