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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Vantaa Art Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 24th (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, trek along Santalahti Nature Trail, and walk around Riverside Park.

To find reviews, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Helsinki trip planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 18°C in May, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
