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.
Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bellevue Beach and Stromforsin ruukki. Change things up with a short trip to Santalahti Nature Trail in Kotka (about 1h 55 min away). Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's more to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers and admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daytime highs in Helsinki are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
