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.
Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

To find reviews, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki online attractions planner.

New Delhi, India to Helsinki is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll gain 3.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from New Delhi in November: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Saariselka.

Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Northern Lights Riders. Kick off your visit on the 5th (Thu): see the interesting displays at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center and then see exotic creatures in open habitats at Northern Lights Riders. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stop by Hippupuoti Gift Shop, thenfly down the slopes at Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort, and then find something for the whole family at Angry Birds Activity Park.

Plan my trip to Saariselka with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can fly from Helsinki to Saariselka in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train and bus; or drive.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Rovaniemi.
