Helsinki

Helsinki ©
Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Lahti (Lahti Minigolf Centre Laune & Sibelius Hall) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 12th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Hietaranta Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and hunt for treasures at Old Market Hall.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
