Helsinki

— 6 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.
Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

Toronto, Canada to Helsinki is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is 7 hours. Traveling from Toronto in August, things will get little chillier in Helsinki: highs are around 24°C and lows about 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to fly 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."
