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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Pack the 17th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 18th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, make a trip to Senate Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki journey planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. October in Helsinki sees daily highs of 48°F and lows of 35°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
