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 Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.

San Francisco, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of subway and flight; or do a combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from San Francisco to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from San Francisco in October, with highs in Helsinki at 48°F and lows at 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
