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 Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Sapokka Water Garden, & more). Pack the 30th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

If you are flying in from Åland Islands, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
