Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: Finland has an extensive network of highways and excellent public transportation services throughout the country. Driving in Finland is on the right side.

  • A valid U.S. driver?s license may be used while visiting Finland, but drivers must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Traffic approaching from the right has priority, even if entering a primary roadway from a secondary one.  Stop signs are rarely used in Finland.
  • It is common practice in Finland, including in large cities, to turn off traffic lights at certain intersections in the early morning hours.
  • Road signs use standard international symbols and Finnish text.
  • Many urban streets have traffic lanes reserved for public transportation only.

Winter driving in Finland can be hazardous. Daylight hours are very short and drivers should be comfortable driving in darkness.

  • Icy road conditions are common.
  • Your vehicle must have snow tires from December through February. Engine heaters are strongly recommended.
  • When driving at night, drivers must be alert to moose wandering onto major roadways. Striking a moose can severely damage a vehicle and even fatally injure its occupants.
  • If you are in a car accident, you must have your insurance paperwork with you.

Traffic Laws: Unless otherwise noted on traffic signs, the speed limit varies from 30 to 40 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h on open roads, and 120 km/h on expressways during summer (100 km/h in winter).

  • Vehicles must use headlights at all times.
  • Use of seatbelts is mandatory for drivers and all passengers.
  • Children under 135 cm (approximately 53 inches) in height must be seated in approved child or booster seats or use appropriate safety equipment as stated on the Finnish Police website .
  • Drunk driving laws are strict.

o   Police strictly enforce all traffic laws and institute random roadside breath-analyzer tests. Drivers who register a 0.05% or higher blood-alcohol content are subject to immediate arrest. For more information, please review the Finnish Police website.

Public Transportation: Public transportation in Finland is of good quality and is the recommended method of travel.

  • Passenger trains, intercity buses, and air flights provide regular service over longer distances.
  • Public transportation in urban centers includes buses, subways, trams, suburban trains, and taxis.
  • Taxis are more expensive than in major U.S. cities. Rates vary widely depending on the company providing the transportation service.
  • Most local residents use public transport in Helsinki as parking is expensive and can be hard to find.

See our Road Safety page for more information. Visit the Finland National Tourist Board and the Finnish Road Safety Council.

Aviation Safety Oversight: The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the government of Finland?s Civil Aviation Authority as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Finland?s air carrier operations. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to Finland should also check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts.  Information may also be posted to the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, and the NGA broadcast warnings.
