Helsinki

— 4 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Helsinki Cathedral and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). There's much more to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, wander the streets of Katajanokka, don't miss a visit to The Esplanadi Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

Plan a trip to Helsinki easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Jacksonville, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Jacksonville to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Jacksonville in January: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 26°F and lows are around 17°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to catch the flight back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
