Helsinki

— 7 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.
Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, make a trip to Senate Square, and get in on the family fun at Linnanmaki Amusement Park.

Beirut, Lebanon to Helsinki is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also drive. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Beirut in August: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 24°C and lows are around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel 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."
