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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sarkanniemi Theme Park (in Tampere), Turku (Turku Castle, Bike Rental - by Carfield, & more) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and find something for the whole family at Linnanmaki Amusement Park.

To find maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Helsinki online journey planner .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
