Helsinki

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, & more), Vantaa (Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre & Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more). Spend the 28th (Sun) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 1st (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Helsinki vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
