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.
Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna are in your itinerary. Visiting Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Ekenas Archipelago National Park in Raseborg (about 1h 20 min away). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, delve into the lush surroundings at Norman Travels, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.

To see more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Helsinki road trip site .

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 1°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
