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.
Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Design Museum capture your imagination. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Lehman, & more) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Spend the 30th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Spend the 7th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's lots more to do: hike along Tulliniemi Nature Path, identify plant and animal life at Nuuksio National Park, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.

To find where to stay, photos, reviews, and tourist information, read our Helsinki journey planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 65°F in June, and nighttime lows around 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
