Nice! I am in the Kootenays!

I have been to Finland, actually, back in 1997 as part of a European backpacking trip. LOVED IT! I loved all of Scandinavia, actually. If you go in the summer, though, remember that the sun never really sets fully. I had a lot of problems sleeping there, and got sick during my trip, probably due to exhaustion.

wow, that's some experience ... i guess that's the beauty of it, being in a totally different place. I am leaving this week though, if no volcanos get angry ... so i won't be having any summer time haha.

Probably the best time of year to go, really. I hope you have great weather! How long are you going for? Do you plan to see any bands while there?

Ok here's couple of places you might want to check while being in Helsinki:

Tavastia-club of course
http://www.tavastiaklubi.fi/index_en.php

Dante's Highlight (cheap beer and bands every night)
http://www.dantes.fi/ (only in finnish unfortunately)

Club PRKL
http://www.prklclub.fi/ (only in finnish)

I am certain you'll find nice people and more importantly likeminded people on those places Smile

lol! well I live and work in Helsinki so it was sort of easy...you won't find me in any "Ricky-Martin- ass-shaking-give-me-my-Dennis-The-Menace-cocktail-with-an-umbrella" hipster places so the places I recommended are really the places to go if you're a metalhead Wink

Thank you very much everyone, Tavastia was definitely on my list and Dante's too because i will probably see Onslaught there (if the show is still on) ... i love this band and never saw them live. So .... Will definitely check out all these places, PRKL sounds awesome Smile

now just praying that there's no more volcano on my way there Suspect

hey everyone just wanted to thank you for the tips, my trip to Helsinki was great, no problems with flying and definitely a wonderful stay there. It felt great, the kind of city i missed, it felt real and friendly and strangely enough - familiar (never been there before)... people are beautiful, i had a great time and i saw all the places i wanted to see and spent a great time with my friend (she came from another country and we met there after many years)....Helsinki is quite a metal city heh?Smile it's kinda difficult to be back here in Vancouver, honestly. Sad

Great! I was wondering how your trip went!

I loved Helsinki when I was there, too, and I felt quite at home with the people, the culture, and the landscape as well. A very cool place indeed, and I'd like to go back there one day for sure. I missed out on a lot when I was there initially, unfortunately.
