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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mannerheim Museum and The National Museum of Finland. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Hiidenvuori (in Iitti). Spend the 28th (Mon) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

For more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip builder.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
