Helsinki

— 11 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: Turku (Bike Rental - by Carfield, Turku Castle, &more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station.

To find ratings, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki road trip website.

Chicago, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 12-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Chicago to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Chicago in June: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 65°F and lows are around 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) to allow time to fly 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."
