During the cold season you can have the Suomenlinna island fortress, one of Finland's most visited tourist locations, almost to yourself. This Unesco World Heritage site just outside Helsinki harbour remains ruggedly beautiful throughout the winter, when ice, light, water, snow and rock convey uniquely enchanting impressions.
Jump onboard the Suomenlinna ferry, or take the warm way out and view our slideshow.
