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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Nuuksio National Park and Hakaniemi Market. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To see reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki trip planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Helsinki is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, car, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Helsinki. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel to Oulu.

Oulu is a city and municipality of inhabitants in the region of Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland. Step off the beaten path and head to Nallikari Beach and Botanical Garden, University of Oulu. When in Oulu, make a side trip to see Raahe Museum in Raahe, approximately Raahe away. There's still lots to do: walk around Hupisaaret Park, have some family-friendly fun at Oulu Climbing Centre, see the interesting displays at Pohjois-Pohjanmaan museo, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
