Helsinki ©
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 Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Arboretum Mustila in Elimaki--about 1h 45 min away. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, identify plant and animal life at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 3°C, and evening lows to -3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
