What to do and see in Vantaa

You'll find that traffic generally flows smoothly through Vantaa and even through neighboring Helsinki. During the morning rush hour, vehicles tend to move toward the center of Helsinki, returning in the evening. As a visitor, you can plan your trip to avoid rush hour. However, you may find that's not even necessary. Finland is renowned for its light traffic, so you might be surprised to hear Finns complaining about a delay of just five or ten minutes!

Finding a parking spot in downtown Vantaa or Helsinki can be a little more complicated. The cheapest option is usually park and ride, which is available in several locations in both cities, usually at train stations. In the centers of the cities, you'll find on-street parking, which gets more expensive the closer you are to the downtown zone. You can pay for on-street parking with a parking meter or by using an app. There is also a phone number you can call to pay for parking in some areas.

Your experience in Finland will vary enormously depending on the time of year you visit. In the summer, the sun never completely sets. The twilight, which lasts all night, is quite enchanting, but it can also be hard to get used to. You may find that you feel particularly tired in the first few days as your body clock adapts. If you are feeling fatigued, be sure to take a break from driving. Share driving duties with other members of your group if you can.

Finnish winters are bitterly cold, but the Finns are well-prepared. Snow plows will regularly clear the roads, particularly around big cities like Helsinki and Vantaa. You may experience some problems if you drive out into the countryside, particularly if you go on back roads rather than highways. Watch out for black ice, which is especially dangerous. Get ready to use an ice scraper every morning to clear your car. Never try to use boiling water to defrost it - this is very dangerous.

There is a car ferry that connects Helsinki to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. It leaves several times a day, taking 2 hours and 10 minutes to complete the crossing. Both Estonia and Finland are members of the Schengen common travel area, so crossing from one to the other is a simple process. If you are planning this international trip, you will first need to talk with your Enterprise Rent-a-Car agent.
