Helsinki

— 8 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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 find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Seattle in September, with highs in Helsinki at 61°F and lows at 45°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Thu) early enough to catch the flight back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
