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.
Visit Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) and The Esplanadi Park for their historical value. Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Finnish Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) in Southern Finland, about 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Katajanokka, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
