Thinking about sustainability?

Media visits are arranged using sustainable guidelines. This means we use mainly public transportation, prefer companies that are in the Think Sustainably service, and we compensate the carbon footprint from our guests’ flights.

Visiting Finland?

Media visits are often carried out together with different partners. If you are interested in visiting other areas besides Helsinki on your trip, please get in touch with our partner Visit Finland first. This website also has a good info package about traveling to Finland during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Influence Sustainably

Helsinki is committed to promoting a more sustainable way of life for everyone. Our collaboration with influencers covers areas of sustainability that especially concerns travel preferences, food, social responsibility, local culture and experiences. To serve this purpose, we have created and launched an operating model, called Influence Sustainably.   

If you’re interested in collaboration with us, get in touch.

Filming in Helsinki

Media representatives can film in public places and events for editorial purposes without a permit. However, please be prepared to give more information regarding your filming in case someone asks. If you are filming people in a way they can be identified, please ask for their consent. 

If filming in public spaces restricts the movement of others or requires traffic arrangements, notification must be given to the police. In addition, permission is required from the landowner or property holder. 

Drones are permitted in many areas, though there are important restrictions to be aware of. More information on these can be found on the Droneinfo website
