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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Fagervik Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 27th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and tee off at Tapiola Golf.

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki day trip planning website.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. August in Helsinki sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
