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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Stromforsin ruukki and Kansallisgalleria. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Riverside Park & Santalahti Nature Trail), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take a memorable tour with Tours, and make a trip to Market Square Kauppatori.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki attractions planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
