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.
Helsinki is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary builder site.

Tallinn, Estonia to Helsinki is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also ride a ferry. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel to Koli National Park.

Although many Koli National Park tours revolve around the majestic natural landscape, there are still plenty of things to see and do for those pursuing culture and heritage.
Venture out of the city with trips to New Valamo Monastery (in Heinavesi) and Joensuu (Sculpture Susi Kosiomatkalla & Botania - Botanical Garden and Tropical Butterfly Garden). There's still lots to do: hike along Paha-Koli Hill, stroll through Ukko-Koli Hill, take some stellar pictures from Rylays Hill, and take in panoramic vistas at Rasavaara Observation tower.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Koli National Park trip builder app.

Explore your travel options from Helsinki to Koli National Park with the Route module. Expect a daytime high around °C in August, and nighttime lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
