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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read Helsinki road trip planner.

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