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.
We've included these beaches for you: Bellevue Beach and Lehman. Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 8th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and stop by Taiga Colors.

For other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. August in Helsinki sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
