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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Sapokka Water Garden) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 17th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read our Helsinki driving holiday planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, daytime highs in Helsinki are 48°F, while nighttime lows are 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
