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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Get in touch with nature at Arboretum Mustila and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Step out of Helsinki to go to Siltakyla and see Valkmusa National Park, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. It doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
