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.
Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Helsinki fast, fun, and easy.

Minneapolis, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is 8 hours. Traveling from Minneapolis in May, expect Helsinki to be a bit cooler, temps between 60°F and 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly 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."
