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 out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Turku (Bike Rental - by Carfield & Turku Castle). There's lots more to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.

To find maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
