Helsinki ©
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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Teijo national park and Nuuksio National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Hiidenvuori (in Iitti). There's lots more to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
