Vantaa

Vantaa ©
Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
On the 27th (Mon), stop by Riimikko and then look for all kinds of wild species at Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Vantaa road trip tool.

Newark, USA to Vantaa is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Newark to Vantaa. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Newark in August, with highs in Vantaa at 68°F and lows at 53°F. On the 29th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Espoo.

Espoo

Espoo ©
Espoo is the second largest city and municipality in Finland. Step out of the city life by going to Arctic Expedition and Bellevue Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Gallen-Kallela Museum and Talomuseo Glims. Change things up with these side-trips from Espoo: Visavuori (in Valkeakoski), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Church of St. Lawrence (in Lohja). There's much more to do: explore the engaging exhibits at Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenka, see the interesting displays at The Finnish Museum of Horology, contemplate the long history of Fiskars Museum, and buy something for everyone on your list at Sello.

For more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Espoo road trip planning app.

Espoo is just a short distance from Vantaa. In August, daytime highs in Espoo are 70°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 2nd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
