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.
Step out of the city life by going to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 3rd (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Cross Church.

To find where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 3°C, while at night they dip to -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
