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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Arctic Expedition & Kaitalampi), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Pack the 22nd (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Katajanokka, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, and head off the coast to Vallisaari.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Helsinki fast, fun, and easy.

Tartu, Estonia to Helsinki is an approximately 4.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of train and flight. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to take a train to Espoo.
