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.
Explore hidden gems such as Arboretum Mustila and Paavolan Tammi. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sibelius Hall and Market Square Kauppatori. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Raseborg (Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen & Ekenas Archipelago National Park) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Pack the 19th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Riverside Park, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, look for gifts at Taiga Colors, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki trip itinerary builder site .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
