Helsinki - Sunday 21st May


Two nights in Joonas' apartment in the trendy Kamppi district of Helsinki, Finland

Joonas is flexible with the check-in time and will let us in as early as he can, if it's not booked the night before.

While waiting for the apartment to be vacated/cleaned we can leave our bags there and head off to breakfast and to explore the area.

The apartment is a 20 minute walk to the waterfront, and only a few hundred metres from the nearest tram station for the 2/3 line which is the one recommended for tourists as it stops at all the popular sights.
