I'm a) cheap; and b) more interested in dining and year-round activities, so I want to go to Finland when its at its most reasonable prices. I was thinking Nov or Dec, but maybe even Jan or Feb. So that brings me to 2 questions.
First, how much of life shuts down in the winter months? Will museums be open? Its a major city so I assume all but touristy stuff will still be operating.
Second, does airfare get cheaper during those months, or is there an ideal time to buy my tickets in advance?
