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 Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 46 minutes away. Pack the 18th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in nature's colorful creations at Observatory Hill Park.

To find maps, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip planner.

San Francisco, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of subway and flight; or do a combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from San Francisco to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from San Francisco in October, with highs in Helsinki at 48°F and lows at 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
