The growth in number of nights spent by foreign tourists in Finland turned downwards in May and the fall continued the whole summer, and nights spent in Finnish accommodation establishments declined further in September 2018. Altogether, 466,000 overnight stays were recorded for foreign visitors, which was 4.6 per cent lower than one year before. In contrast, the number of nights spent by resident tourists remained on level with the previous year and they stayed the night at accommodation establishments almost 1.3 million times. In all, a good 1.7 million overnight stays were recorded at Finnish accommodation establishments, which was 1.3 per cent lower than in September 2017. These figures are preliminary data from Statistics Finlands statistics on accommodation establishments and they have been collected from accommodation establishments with at least 20 beds or caravan pitches with electricity connection.
