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 in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Hietaranta Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Change things up with a short trip to Linden Esplanade in Kotka (about 2 hours away). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church.

Start your trip to Helsinki by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In March, daytime highs in Helsinki are 3°C, while nighttime lows are -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
