Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Pack the 18th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and expand your understanding of the military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planning site.

Los Angeles, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a 10 hour difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Los Angeles in May; daily highs in Helsinki reach 60°F and lows reach 43°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can catch the flight back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
