Helsinki ©
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 discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and don't miss a visit to Market Square Kauppatori.

For photos, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to travel to Oulu.
