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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Artisaanifor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, identify plant and animal life at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

To see more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki road trip website .

Ankara, Turkey to Helsinki is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and ferry; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Ankara to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Ankara in September, plan for little chillier days in Helsinki, with highs around 19°C, while nights are much colder with lows around 8°C. On the 22nd (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
