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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sapokka Water Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland.

To see where to stay, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
