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 some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kansallisgalleria and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Riverside Park (in Kotka). Spend the 16th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Hiidenvuori, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, and take in the exciting artwork at Galerie Forsblom.

To see ratings, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki route planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 3°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
