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.
Escape the urban bustle at Arboretum Mustila and Bellevue Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Santalahti Nature Trail). Pack the 19th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Helsinki trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 71°F in July, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
