Encompassing historical cities, swathes of countryside, and a stunning coastline, Western Finland offers a wealth of cultural and natural attractions.
Get out of town with these interesting Western Finland side-trips: Ideapark (in Lempaala), Mantta-Vilppula (Serlachius Museum Gosta & Serlachius Museum Gustaf) and The Car Museum of Vehoniemi (Vehoniemen automuseo) (in Kangasala). Spend the 11th (Sat) exploring nature at Seitsemisen Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ahtari Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Petajavesi Old Church, brush up on your military savvy at Finnish Air Force Museum, and examine the collection at The Alvar Aalto Museum.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Tampere-Pirkkala Airport, Vaasa Airport and Turku Airport. August in Western Finland sees daily highs of 22°C and lows of 12°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
