Ascension Day is a holiday that falls in the middle of the week and is celebrated this year on May 18th. It is an official day off that offers a great opportunity for a mini-vacation within the country.
It’s quite easy to create an extended weekend from Ascension Day, and many people take an extra day off on the following day, giving them a nice four-day break amid their busy lives.
Many people take advantage of the long weekend to explore domestic travel destinations, and what’s even better is that during Ascension Day, cities like Helsinki almost feel like summer.
Ascension Day is a great time to spend with friends and family. If you’re travelling with children, make sure to choose a hotel or its vicinity that offers kid-friendly activities. One popular attraction in Helsinki is Linnanmäki amusement park, which opens its doors on April 28th and is a fantastic destination for the whole family.
If you want to enjoy your mini vacation within the hotel premises, choosing a hotel offering spa and wellness services is worth choosing. Many hotels provide services such as massages, sauna facilities, swimming pools, and other relaxing activities. Additionally, hotels often have restaurants where you can enjoy high-quality dining experiences.
On the other hand, if you want to combine a city break with nature experiences, choosing a hotel near outdoor areas and hiking trails with good access to popular activities is recommended. In Helsinki, you can find plenty of beautiful natural spots where you can enjoy the outdoors and hiking. Many of these destinations are already stunning by the end of May.
The most popular hotels tend to fill up quickly during the Ascension Day week, so making your hotel reservation promptly is advisable.
