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 Teijo national park and Stromforsin ruukki. Your inner history buff will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach). There's much more to do: hike along Santalahti Nature Trail, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church.

For more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip builder website .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
