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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, stroll through Sibelius Monument, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.

To see reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki road trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
