Loviisa

Loviisa ©
Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. On the 2nd (Wed), look for gifts at Riimikko, then revel in the low prices at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila. On the 3rd (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: walk around Riverside Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, then take a stroll through Linden Esplanade, then stroll through Santalahti Nature Trail, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Loviisa day trip tool.

Helsinki to Loviisa is an approximately 1.5- hour car ride. In October, daily temperatures in Loviisa can reach 8°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to go by car to Helsinki.

Helsinki ©
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.
Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Artisaani. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Inkoo (Inkoon kirkko & Fagervik Museum). Spend the 10th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 11th (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, shop like a local with ARTag Gallery, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
