Helsinki tourism statistics

Visit Helsinki publishes a monthly statistical report on Helsinki tourism.

The report includes the latest statistical information published by Statistics Finland, the Finnish Maritime Administration and Finavia. Accommodation statistics have a two-month delay due to technical reasons.

A ten-year overview is available for the years 1990-2000.

Overnight stays up 4% in January

Overnight stays in Helsinki increased by 4.1% in January. Stays by overseas visitors were up almost 6%, while the domestic segment grew more than 2%. Every second overnight stay was attributable to Russian visitors; this share was unchanged from January 2013. The statistics indicate that most other significant overseas market areas also grew, with only Germany, France and Estonia decreasing.

Nationwide overnight stays were up 1.4% in January. The domestic segment grew 0.9% and stays by international visitors were up 2.0%. Overnight stays by Russian visitors were unchanged nationwide as well.

The room occupancy rate of accommodation providers was 59.7% in January, i.e. very slightly higher than one year earlier. The average price of an overnight stay, €68.59, was just under half a euro lower than in January 2013. Overnight stays by recreational travellers increased the most, but the business travel segment also grew. The average duration of stays decreased slightly from January 2013.

The volume of passengers at Helsinki-Vantaa airport was up more than 5% in January-February. Both the international and the domestic segment grew. Passenger volumes decreased 3% at Helsinki's ports, however. Estonian traffic continued to grow, but the temporary absence of MS Silja Serende, which is undergoing extensive renovations, caused Swedish traffic to drop. Traffic to Saint Petersburg decreased because the ships of that line were temporarily moved to Sochi to provide accommodation for the Winter Games.
