Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. Visiting Arboretum Mustila and Beach Mansikkalahti will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Sapokka Water Garden and Maritime Centre Vellamo. Change things up with these side-trips from Loviisa: Hiidenkirnut (in Askola) and Kotka (Riverside Park & Linden Esplanade). There's more to do: don't miss a visit to Stromforsin Ruukki and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry.

To find photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Loviisa day trip planning site.

Paphos, Cyprus to Loviisa is an approximately 11- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Paphos in July, with highs in Loviisa at 24°C and lows at 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Helsinki.

Helsinki

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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland.

For maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by car from Loviisa to Helsinki takes 1.5 hours. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
