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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Katajanokka and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Ullanlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 18°C during the day and 7°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
