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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila. Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Hiidenvuori (in Iitti) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bellevue Beach, kick back and relax at Beach Mansikkalahti, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church.

Plan my trip to Helsinki with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
