Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Get outdoors at Hietaranta Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas & Wellness and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukion Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki travel itinerary creator.

Portland, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 21-hour flight. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from Portland to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Portland in May, with highs in Helsinki at 58°F and lows at 41°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 10th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Levi.
