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 some historical perspective at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Pohjolan toimitalo. You'll explore and learn at Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Ekenas Museum (in Raseborg), Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti, Linden Esplanade, & more) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, view the masterpieces at Galerie Forsblom, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and stop by Okra.

To see where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around -3°C in January, and nighttime lows around -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
