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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Popular historic sites such as Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 20th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daytime highs in Helsinki are 25°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
