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 some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla--about 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, daytime highs in Helsinki are 48°F, while nighttime lows are 35°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
