Helsinki in February

Visiting the capital of Finland in February isn’t everyone’s idea of a fun time. It is cold, very cold, -12c during the day. There are huge piles of snow everywhere. The noise of cars skidding on roads is a constant backdrop. This is how I’m completing the set of Nordic capitals and it’s thrilling.

So, how just how snowy is Helsinki in February?
