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.
Escape the urban bustle at Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Santalahti Nature Trail and Lehman. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki travel route builder website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
