Helsinki ©
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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Get some cultural insight at Temppeliaukion Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 8th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Pack the 5th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki. There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, don't miss a visit to S-market Hakaniemi, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.

For maps, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 60°F in September, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
