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 Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park, Raseborg Castle, & more) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Spend the 1st (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Spend the 2nd (Sat) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, trek along Santalahti Nature Trail, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Helsinki trip simple and quick.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 43°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
