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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Espoo (Kaitalampi & Arctic Expedition). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki attractions website.

New York City, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from New York City to Helsinki. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from New York City in May: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around °F and lows are around °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
