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 Mannerheim Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get outdoors at Arboretum Mustila and Valkmusa National Park. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
