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.
Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna are in your itinerary. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Pack the 6th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Market Square Kauppatori, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

To plan Helsinki vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 46°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
