Night Life In Finland

Nightlife in Finland varies a lot in terms of fun activities to do and the many options that exist in the country. Plenty of the spots in many of the cities cater to a particular age demographic, social status or lovers of a particular music style or genre.

These spots are spread across big locations like Helsinki, Tampere, and, Turku and have become notorious for the number of crowds that they witness most nights and in the weekends. Small towns might have fewer options but do not be deceived, there is something for everyone in Finland.

Surprisingly, the cities or towns with some of the best nightlife in the country are the ones that house majority of the universities and higher institutions in Finland. Which goes to say that students and student culture have played and continues to play a huge role in the night scene in the country. Areas like Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Jyväskyla, Oulu, Vassa, Joensuu, Lappeenranta, and Rovaniemi have the largest number of the student population in Finland.

The night scene in Finland is one of beauty and panache mixed with adventure and friendship. The beautiful architecture overlooking the night skies and the many lights in the city makes Finland a sight to behold even at night.

Popular night time activities like pub crawling, nightclubbing or even lighter hangouts or games nights are very common fixtures among students, both local and foreign. The pubs open up for business very early in the evening especially on the weekends and the clubs do not end till the early hours of the day.

The night time is also filled with events, shows and, performances across different parts of a typical Finnish city. Foreign students seize this opportunity to mingle and make friends with the locals in the city.

Because Finland is a very safe country, individuals find it easy to move around even during late hours. Finland is also quite cold most times in a year, so you’d find that many facilities have coat-check services.

Other nighttime activities include camping, ferry cruises across the many lakes in the country and even a relaxing night in any of the famous saunas of Finland.
