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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Stockmann's Department Store. You'll get in some beach time at Bellevue Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Pieni Suklaatehdas (in Porvoo), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In February, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 33°F, while at night they dip to 26°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
