Helsinki Card CITY vs. Helsinki Card REGION

When exploring Helsinki you have two options to choose between. When you purchase your Helsinki Card it not only provides you with free or discounted entry into attractions, that one card also acts as your free travelcard around the city of Helsinki and also in Metropolitan area.

You can upgrade your Helsinki Card CITY to Helsinki Card REGION, which provides you with extended travel possibilities in the Helsinki metropolitan area. It includes free travel not only in Helsinki but also Espoo, Kauniainen and Vantaa and free travel from the airport. Perfect if you’d like to venture out of the city.
