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 discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Get outdoors at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Aurinkolahti Beach. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

To find traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki trip site.

Green Bay, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Green Bay to Helsinki. When traveling from Green Bay in July, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Helsinki: temperatures range from 71°F by day to 55°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) to allow time to travel to Kuusamo.
