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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Stromforsin Ruukki. Visiting Arboretum Mustila and Santalahti Nature Trail will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Pack the 17th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for gifts at Taiga Colors, and explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 18°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
