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.
Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Katajanokka, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nuuksio National Park.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
