Summer in Helsinki is a season of magical nightless nights, also called white nights, when the sun hardly sets at all and the sky never gets completely dark. It’s also a time when parks, forests and meadows display foliage in every possible shade of green.
Lights in Helsinki: summer and autumn actually begins in the spring. You’ll see a group of students “crowning” the downtown statue Havis Amanda with a graduation cap to kick off the wild May Day celebrations. Aerial shots show just how green Helsinki is in the summer, and the camera wanders along flower- and tree-lined paths until the autumn leaves change colour.
