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.
Get outdoors at Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna will appeal to museum buffs. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla, approximately 1h 50 min away. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and take a peaceful walk through Norman Travels.

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
