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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Liopro Finland - Handmade Souvenirfor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 19th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, go for a walk through Linden Esplanade, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip builder site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
