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 Porvoo Old Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Kotka Church, &more) and Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Pack the 21st (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 24th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Katajanokka, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, admire the masterpieces at Design Museum, and hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market.

To see where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planning app.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
