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 Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Popular historic sites such as Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, explore the ancient world of Raseborg Castle, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 3°C, and evening lows to -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
