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.
Bring the kids along to Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Change things up with a short trip to Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla (about 1h 50 min away). Pack the 29th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, cool off at The Swimming Stadium, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.

December in Helsinki sees daily highs of 3°C and lows of -3°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
