Finnish residents' domestic trips to free-time residences increased in 2020
30 Mar 2021
The travel phenomenon of 2020 was spending time at free-time residences in Finland and the number of overnight stays on domestic trips to free-time residences doubled compared with the previous year. In 2020, Finnish residents made a total of 2.3 million different leisure trips abroad, the number of which was only good one quarter compared to the year before due to the coronavirus crisis. Altogether 21.4 million different domestic leisure trips with overnight stay were made, which is nearly one fifth fewer than in 2019. However, trips were clearly longer in duration than in the previous year, for which reason the number of overnight stays increased by over 10 per cent. No significant change took place in the overnight stays of domestic leisure travellers outside Greater Helsinki compared with the previous year. By contrast, domestic leisure trips with overnight stay increased by nearly 50 per cent among residents in Greater Helsinki.

Description: The Finnish Travel Survey contains information on trips made by Finnish residents and on persons having travelled. The survey describes domestic and outbound trips with overnight stays and same-day trips abroad. The Finnish Travel Survey concerns statistics on tourism demand.
