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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Nuuksio National Park and Kaivopuisto. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo, approximately 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki online visit planner .

Phoenix, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Phoenix to Helsinki, you'll lose 9 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Phoenix in October: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 48°F and lows are around 35°F. You will have some time to spend on the 12th (Sat) before leaving for home.
