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.
Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and stroll through The Esplanadi Park.

For maps, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, read our Helsinki itinerary builder website.

Seattle, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time is 10 hours. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Seattle in September, with highs in Helsinki at 61°F and lows at 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) to allow enough time to fly 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."
