Helsinki

— 5 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Helsinki is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, and get to know the resident critters at Korkeasaaren Elaintarha.

New York City, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 13-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from New York City to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from New York City in April: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 47°F and lows are around 32°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
