SkyWheel Helsinki is a 40-meter (131 feet) tall Ferris wheel in central Helsinki, Finland. One of its gondola cabins, the SkySauna, is the world's first sauna on a Ferris wheel. It opened to the public on June 3, 2014. It was originally named the Finnair SkyWheel and its placement on Katajanokka harbor is where the airline Finnair first located its flight operations in the 1920s.
The Netherlands-based Dutch Wheels designed and constructed the wheel. It is a model R40. It has 30 climate controlled gondolas, allowing the wheel to operate year-round. Of these, 29 blue-and-white gondolas can accommodate six people, except for the VIP gondola which can accommodate four. The wood paneled SkySauna gondola can hold up to five people. The VIP gondola features a glass floor and leather chairs.

Good view and comfortable seats. One ticket will give you around 5 rounds. But the price could've been lower, it's not worth €12

Gives a nice view of Helsinki. Runs for 12 mins for every ticket purchase. It's a good place to click some quick photos of Helsinki cityscape.

Reasonable cost, great views or around the city and out to the sea, wheel turns and few times to allow opportunities to see from all around the beautiful city.

Nice view of the port, the small islands and the city. Recommended.

Good views of the city. U can have combo ticket for sealife. Staff will guide you through well. 3-4 rounds for about 10-12 minutes

It's nice to see and it's warm but definitely not a must do of Helsinki. Price is 12€ for a 12 min ride and that I feel is a bit too much for what you get. It's goes around about 4-5 times and goes so fast that my wife started to feel a little nauseous. It would be nice if they did it at half the pace and fewer rounds so you have more time to take non blurry pictures

Awesome views, you could plan your next place for visiting. Windows are tinted, but I made nice photos. Friendly staff and a lot of fun for children.

Great view of the city and harbour. Got around 5 times. Airconditioned and nice music. Sat afterwards on the deck and had a nice drink. Absolutely lovely experience.

Make sure to check out the combined offer for the wheel and the 4D flying over Helsinki that Is located next door

Visited in May 2017. Tried this attraction after incidentally came across. Each person is charged €12 and for that fee one gets five spins. The wheel has 30 rooms, with room no. 15 and no. 30 are special sauna rooms with special fee as well. Each room has blue glass layering upon the whole window, therefore any photographs you make inside of the room should be bluish as well. Sometimes the spin was too fast, sometimes was too slow. From the highest spot, you could see the view of Helsinki, although I was not sure the whole city was well-captured or not. Not a highly recommended spot but nice to try if you have spare time while in Helsinki.

Loved it. Nice views, gentle experience, cars cooler than you'd expect even in the hot weather.
