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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, appreciate the history behind Haaksirikkoiset, and admire the landmark architecture of The National Library of Finland.

For traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. October in Helsinki sees daily highs of 48°F and lows of 35°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
