Helsinki

— 6 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 much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and make a trip to Senate Square.

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki driving holiday planning tool.

Asheville, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 18.5-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a 7 hour difference. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Asheville in September; daily highs in Helsinki reach 61°F and lows reach 45°F. On the 12th (Mon), you'll 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."
