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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Kaitalampi (in Espoo) and Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka). Pack the 1st (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
