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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Spend the 18th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 24th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorpi National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, delve into the distant past at Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To plan Helsinki vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
