Travel insurance for Finland: take a little detour through Scandinavia
Helsinki, Oulu, Kitee and Loviisa are just a few of the Finnish towns that attract people to this Scandinavian country. Located in the north of Europe, Finland invites you to a visit devoted to nature, discovery and relaxation, all in the heart of an exotic, outward-looking country. With a Schengen visa you will be able to travel in complete freedom and stay in Finland long enough to appreciate all of its unmissable riches and attractions.
Request your Schengen visa so that you can visit Finland in complete freedom
In order to move between the 25 countries of the Schengen Area, or even just to travel around Finland itself, third country nationals will require a Schengen visa. Your visa request will be carried out in the country through which you will be entering the Schengen Area, whether it is France, Germany, Estonia or Finland, for example.
In applying for your Schengen visa you will have to explain the reason for your visit (recreational, study, work, etc.) and, as well as supporting documents including proof of identity, you will be asked to provide evidence of travel insurance.

Travel carefree with your Schengen visa insurance for Finland
Schengen visa travel insurance for Finland will allow you to not only provide the evidence required upon issuance of your visa, but also to be fully protected during your stay in Finland, as well the other countries you visit during your trip.
For your visa, you are required to take out a travel insurance policy for Finland covering repatriation in the event of accident or death and medical costs, with a minimum of 30,000 Euros. You can, of course, add extra coverage options to make your visit as peaceful as possible: assistance for insured solo travellers in the event of hospitalisation, care for children under the age of 18, etc.
How to get to Finland
By plane: most flights land at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, but other international airports can be found in Tampere, Turku and Oulu. In winter, charter flights also go to Lapland. Both regular and low-cost flights serve Finland from Paris, Berlin and Brussels, among other cities. Allow around 3 hours to fly from France and 1 hour 50 from Germany.
Advice on health and vaccinations
There are no compulsory vaccinations for visiting Finland. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you be vaccinated against hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus and polio, as well as tick-borne encephalitis, especially in spring or summer, for your walks in the countryside.
Finland has a cool, temperate climate. In winter, it regularly drops to -30°C in Lapland. This is a long season here; between 5 months in the south of the country and 7 months in the north. During the summer it can be very hot; up to 30°C in some regions, and the days are very long. Remember to keep yourself covered up in the evening, as the temperature falls rapidly.
In Utsjoki, there is a period of 7 weeks of polar night between 26th November and 17th January when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon. On the other hand, to see the midnight sun you will need to visit the same town between 17th May and 27th July.
Finland is a large country that you’ll have to devote sufficient time to. To travel freely between Helsinki and Lapland via the south of the country, you are advised to rent a car.
-Helsinki: the Finnish capital allows you not only to discover Scandinavian cuisine, but also to go in search of landmarks like the cathedral; the metallic statue at Kiasma; as well as sports, tram and aquarium museums, among others. The numerous shops will appeal to all lovers of retail. The city’s varied architectural styles will also fascinate visitors.
-Meet Santa Claus in Lapland: located in the very north of Finland, Lapland is a favoured destination for any visitor. As a family, you will be able to visit Santa’s village, as well as enjoying sports like snowmobiling, snowshoe hiking and skiing. It’s a perfect area for nature lovers and, of course, to observe the Aurora Borealis (northern lights).
--Hiking enthusiasts will love Finland. While Lapland in particular is home to various national parks (Pyhä-Luosto, Urho Kekkonen, Lemmenjoki, Pallas-Yllästunturi), you will also enjoy the surroundings of Tampere and Oulanka National Park in the east.
-For forest strolls and diving into great lakes in the summer, the places to be are Lake Inari and Saimaa. Don’t forget your tent and insect repellent.
Finland is a safe country. In the cities it is recommended that you exercise caution with regards to pickpockets, especially around the stations and in tourist areas.
It is very easy to make yourself understood in Finland if you speak English, as everybody has a good command of the language, especially in big cities.
Most shops stay open until 6pm, or even 8pm during the week in major cities. Hypermarkets generally close their doors around 9pm.
In the spring and summer, it is advised that you carry insect repellent, especially for walks in the countryside. These products can be easily found in the country’s shops.
