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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park, Arctic Expedition, & more) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 14th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Spend the 21st (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, and stroll through The Esplanadi Park.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
