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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The National Museum of Finland. Get outdoors at Valkmusa National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth & Santalahti Nature Trail). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and cruise along King's Road.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online travel planner.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
