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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Musical Fountain (in Lahti), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). Pack the 30th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
