Helsinki, the capital of Finland is located in the southern part of Finland.
On the shores of the Gulf of Finland right across from Estland’s capital Tallinn. The city also houses the Finnish Parliament and ministries. The city’s population is approximately 650,000 people, but if you include the surrounding residential areas around the city, the population count is over one million. Which adds up to almost 20% of the entire country’s residents.
The city of Helsinki was founded by the Swedish king Gustaaf I in 1550, to serve as a trade competitor for Tallinn. This did not turn out as planned and the settlement was claimed by Russia in 1809 before the Finnish decided to move the capital from western Turku to the centrally located Helsinki in 1912. This caused the city to grow rapidly and eventually led to the relocation of the Finnish University from Turku to Helsinki as well in 1827.
During the Second World War Helsinki was one of the very few cities to not be occupied by a foreign force. Although it did suffer bombings by the soviet forces.
An absolutely breathtaking way to behold the city and its surrounding highlights from above.

The Bengtskär lighthouse. The tour itself takes around 45 minutes, which may not seem like a very long time but we assure you, it is plenty to leave you breathless. During this tour we will fly you out to the remote island, providing you with a stunning areal view of the Nordics when we pass the many islands and highlights of the archipelago before reaching the lighthouse. Like the Suomenlinna Fortress and Helsinki Cathedral. And if you are lucky you may even spot some wild seals that can often be found sunbathing on the rocks near the lighthouse.
