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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and King's Road will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and trek along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 9°C in April, and nighttime lows around 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
