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.
Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, hunt for treasures at Old Market Hall, and look for all kinds of wild species at Riverside Park.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to -3°C, and evening lows to -9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
