Finnish Women: The Player’s Guide To Helsinki

by The Masculine Traveler

Finnish women are probably the most confusing to describe in all of Scandannia.

What comes to mind when thinking of Finnish women? For some men, it is long-legged, fair-skinned beauties from the north.

If you ask other men, they will describe the girls from Finland at feminist tomboys.

In this article, we will elucidate what Finnish women in Helsinki are really like, how to meet and date them in Helsinki.

The capital of Finland, Helsinki consists of nearly 1.3 million and the countries largest city. With over 1/5 of the countries population living in the capital, it certainly begs the question – Is Helsinki the place to be for Finnish women? Let’s find out.

Harsh winters, hot summers. Fall and winter are great times to visit due to university being in session, but temperatures can be pretty cold in the January and February months –hovering around the -10C/14F degree mark.

Winter is a great time to visit, and also tack on a trip to Northern Finland, known as Lappland. Just prepare, and bring adequate gear with you on your journey.

Logistics of Helsinki

The majority of the main sights, daygame spots and nightlife venues are located directly in Helsinki’s compact center. It’s easy to lock down an apartment here, but for something modern and well-situated, expect to be paying around the 100EUR/120USD per night mark.

Booking.com has a solid offering, as well as AirBnB.

CityKoti is a great budget apartment option and is about a 10-minute walk from the direct center.

In terms of pricing, expect costs on par with the rest of Scandinavia. Booze will cost you 7-8 EUR a beer in the bar on average, and breakfast runs about 8-10 EUR for a coffee and sandwich.

If you’re price sensitive, this might not be the best destination for you.

For the best results in terms of accommodation, and easy access to everything you need, you’ll want to be located within the red circle shown below:



Finnish is recognized as one of the most difficult languages in the world, and somehow has linguistic origins that relate it to the Hungarian language. Finns are very proud of their language, as well as their country, but at the same time have a great command of the English language. In almost all cases, you won’t have any issues communicating with locals in English.


The looks and personality of Finnish women

As outlined in the guide on Tampere, feminism is a way of life in Finland, and it shows. It’s not uncommon to see pink hair and nose rings floating around the city. There are a few lookers, but the talent surely could be better overall. A selection of blondes are on offer, and of course also many brunettes around as well.

Unfortunately, Finnish women do not have the same allure that Norwegian and Swedish girls do for example. Finnish women tend to dress down and have fully embraced the hipster way of life. The reality on the ground in Helsinki is that Finnish women dress very usually even at night. You will not see skirts and high heels like you do in Kiev, for example. Toots, wild hairstyles and piercings are common among Finnish women in Helsinki.

In short, the looks of Finnish women can be a bit disappointing by Scandinavian measures. They actually have a very nice genetic make-up. The frustrating part is that they have much more potential to look beautiful if they put more attention into their appearance. Fundamentally, they have nice skin, features and eyes.

Their bodies can be slender with curves in the right places. There’s definitely a few decent women around, but all-in-all, not enough to warrant a visit to Helsinki strictly for this purpose. If you’re looking for Scandinavian women, then Norway is certainly a better bet.

Finnish women are actually more similar to Russian women than other Scandinavian women. This similarity is not apparent at first, but their Slavic traits become more obvious with more time you spend in Finland. That is where the similarities with Russian girls ends.

They do not share the same attitudes and cultural traits with Russian girls. Finnish women are much more independent that the girls in Russia. They are proud to be financially stable and not dependent on a man. They also tend to marry at a later age.

What Finnish women lack in their attention to appearance, they make up for in personality. On the surface, they appear shy and somewhat awakened. However, as you get to know Finnish women, they reveal a kind, gentle and sweet disposition. They are very opened minded and liberal in ideology. This translates into them being very open towards dating other races. Men of Indian, Middle Eastern, and African descent do quite well in Helsinki.

It is interesting to note that Finnish women do not like to make a lot of small talk. There will be long pauses in conversations. These pauses are not necessarily a negative like with American girls. Instead, they are useful for building sexual chemistry.

Online Game

Tinder it seems a bit played out. Online dating is not stellar for Helsinki but there are two dating sites that are worth a look:

  1. International Cupid: has a fair representation of Finnish women. It is also a great dating website for men who will be traveling to other locations. You can use International Cupid to meet women from just about anywhere in the world.
  2. Russian Cupid: is the second option. Since there are Russian girls in Helsinki, this can be a great platform to meet up with them.



Women can be a bit shy and awkward during the day, but they definitely are open to conversation. Getting numbers i fairly easy during the day, they don’t always lead to scheduling a date. Finnish women are very polite and concern with not offending people. They usually do not decline your offer for a date. Instead, they will deal with it passively if not interested.

It is also not recommended to ask Finnish women too many questions. Finnish culture is centered around social circles. Fins usually hook up with people in their social group. They are not accustomed to being asked lots of questions from strangers. Being overly personal and intuitive about her personal like will make a Finnish girl feel uncomfortable.

Street approaches are very difficult due to the extreme cold. In terms of general talent, your best bet would be one of two places during the winter months:

  1. Railway station at Kamppi Center and surrounding mall
  2. Stockmann – Up-scale department store. Grocery store on the bottom level, with a solid selection of talent.

Nightlife in Helsinki

Ever since visiting Iceland, I always thought that Icelanders went the hardest in terms of drinking – Reykjavik was out of control, with people falling over drunk and glasses breaking every other minute. Finland definitely was on a new level, especially what I saw in one of the smaller towns north of Helsinki.

Really, a whole new level on the blacked-out scale. People drink themselves to oblivion – then they are falling all over the place (partly due to the snow and icy weather), riding around on top of cars, passing out in hallways, and engaging in conversations while being completely obliterated (and still somehow conscious).

This goes as well for the Finnish women – they booze hard, and are certainly sexually liberated. Finland is well known for its One-Night stand culture, and as with the rest of Scandinavia, their affinity to Americans and their culture.

If you want to visit Finland and make something happen, I’d say that night game has to be the way to go. Alcohol can be pricey, so buckle up and be ready to drink hard with the Finns.


Closing thoughts on Finnish women

Finnish women will not impress you like in Kiev or Moscow. However, they are cute enough on average. Finnish women have the following going for them: sweet dispositions, friendly, open, and open-minded towards dating a variety of men. Day game is a bit challenging in Helsinki, but it is fairly easy to mix it up with Finnish women at night.

Finnish women need some alcohol to loosen up. Once they have a few drinks, they become much more flirtatious. Helsinki is definitely a one-night stand city.

Overall, Helsinki is worth a day or two-day visit to see the city and get a solid weekend in. Your best bet would be a short trip, and hitting nightlife hard for the best possible results. Outside of that, there’s not much to see or do after a few days, and your time would be better served in other parts of the country, in terms of sightseeing.

With Tallinn a quick 2-hour ferry ride away, and Russia sitting roughly 1 hour away by train, there’s a lot of close-by places that provide better options in terms of talent.

Nonetheless, Finland is certainly a destination worth visiting for its beautiful nature, and picturesque sights to be found deep in the North.

Wow generalisations much? How ignorant can one person come across in one blog. You were in Finland for a blink and seen a small portion of the women and think you have the experience to be truly representative of the entire female population. Guessing someone with this attitude to women struggles to get laid.

Actually, I have personally witnessed some of the points he mentions. And I’ve been living in Finland (specifically in Helsinki) for 4 years. Let’s see your picture before you mock him. You’re most likely a fat, ugly sexually frustrated woman.

Tai suomeksi jos sitä haluaisit mieluummin. Olen itse todistanut joitakuita tässä mainittu asioita. Olen asunut Suomessa (erityisesti Helsingissä) 4 vuotta. Näytä kuvasi ja sitten saat pilkata häntä. Olet todennäköisimmin ruma ja lihava seksuaalisesti turhautunut nainen.

I think Finnish women Look like men. Only way how to recognise them is often a handbag.

My opinion.
If you see beautiful woman in Finland shes 99% russian or estonian. Feminive, long legs, petit body vs finnish body: short thick legs, big bones and short thin hair. Finnish women also feel serious pressure how they look like. Internet and dating apps are making it worse.

Typically educated finnish man marries estonian/russian woman and less educated asian woman. Typically Finnish women hates them all and this has caused a massive mental health problem among Finnish women: “nobody likes or understands me”. Thats the ultimate price of feminism.

sotrue July 23, 2019 - 5:13 PM

As a foreigner that has been living in Finland for X years all I can say is that never, elsewhere else in the world I’d have scored as many times as in this country, guaranteed to get laid if you come here. Finn chix drink, and a lot, trust me on that, so be prepared to have a cultural shock on weekends especially summertime, big reason why they get easier :-)) Women on this forum complaining are the ones that nobody wants, fat, ugly, feminist, liberal or … or… you name it. And yes alcohol in this country is a huge cultural problem unfortunately, not only men drink, you will see it by yourself once you are here, and the tatoo fashion is a complete disaster on women’s body. The numbers of women cheating on their companion / husband is crazy high, you don’t wanna know how many me or my foreign friends have banged married or in relationship women.
Again, don’t be fooled by their cuteness or beauty ’cause in the end it will just end in a divorce as 90% of my foreign friends living here with kids. Their cultural mentality is just from an other planet, women just behave like men, and are such feminists pricks it’s unbelievable. When coming here, just come here and use their stupidy and get laid, for the rest, I’d say ….. beware, it’s a trap if you are thinking of true love, you will in the beginning, but later the truth will start to show up how they really are. There are much better other nationalities to have a relationship with than finn chix trust me on that. No wonder russian women with their old fashion mentalities get better publicities in Finland, they are much better to have a family with than finns do. And btw, I am not a russian speaking person or neither coming from the east, just giving plain fact.

It would be useful to include some average Finnish faces instead of just models.

Filip February 28, 2020 - 8:01 PM

They are models? They look pretty average to me. I am Slav, so maybe I am used to another quality, but this? 7,5/10

M November 17, 2019 - 8:28 PM

Wow the things you find on the internet 😂 I didn’t want to believe a real life Barney Stinson actually existed but here we are 😂.. Maybe they dress conservatively to avoid slimey STD ridden foreign men pursuing them. Have you seen the men over there?! They don’t need to go out of there way to impress visitors when they have tall Viking men at their disposal… However somewhere like Kiev they do as the men are fucking disgusting 😂

Pablo February 23, 2020 - 11:57 AM

SOTRUE, did a great description. From my part, almost nothing to add. However.
Not only women, of course men, suffer of mental disorders, one of those for example: depression. And many other dissorder that probably you have never ever heard. That is Finnish culture.
Many women behave as an unpolite man. Talk as uneducated man, walk as a man and think that women are same than men.
It is common to have sex at first date, and also that woman drink your sperm.
Most finnish men are affraid of women, not only to talk to them, but to be in any kind of relationship with them. This is a way how finnish men protect their health. Many Finnish men, are just not interested in women.
And Finnish women hate finnish men. Finnish men, obbey women as a little dog. Most Finnish men practice gym and many have body almost as bodybuilder.

Get laid in Finland, is way easier than in other countries. Most women have a pretty face and new clothes, and many live alone.

In this culture, love doesn’t exist. Neither positive emotions. Negative emotions is the way that govern Finnish people. Sadly, many Finns, have been thought very serious problems in the family at chilhood time, generation to generation.

As you know, don’t get surprises.
Fuck a bitch and leave the country. Don’t get trap!

Bettertobecold March 24, 2020 - 8:27 PM

Nicknames sotrue and pablo sound like a disgusting men (perhaps from South without any manners or values) who had breakup with finn girls maybe because she didn’t accept cheating or games they play forever. Finnish girls can be very nice and pretty but if you play games and cheat then they also know how to turn to be cold for a cold person. Here it is totally useless to compare women how they look like which country is the best etc. Because there is beautiful and ugly people in every country it is the only truth after all. It could be maybe Finland didn’t win many miss world competitions but miss fitness they did and other competitions yes. Those 2 nicknames of pablo and sotrue show how ugly they are I mean ugly souls and ugly point of view. Hopefully personally I will never meet this kind of men let me guess maybe you are both italians.

Marko August 17, 2020 - 11:06 AM

I think Tim is wrong usually finish men ends up marrying Swedish speaking finns. There’s about 500 000 swedish speaking finns in finland and their ethnicity is finish but they speak swedish. There’s so few swedish speaking finns in finland and almost everyone of them is quite similar and almost every swedish speaking finn knows each other. These woman’s usually dress and act more feminine then finish woman’s and that could be because that almost everyone of them comes from rich families
