Freetown — 6 nights

Straddling an undulating coastline, Freetown serves as the capital and largest city of Sierra Leone.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Freetown: Lakka Beach (in Lakka), River Number Two Beach (in Sussex) and Bureh Beach (in Bure Town). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary, explore and take pictures at Cotton Tree, see some colorful creatures with Banana Divers Sierra Leone, and head off the coast to Bunce Island.

For more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Freetown trip planner.

Helsinki, Finland to Freetown is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Helsinki to Freetown due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Helsinki in December, expect Freetown to be warmer, temps between 36°C and 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.

Rich in history, natural wonders, and picturesque landscapes, Sierra Leone remains an unappreciated destination largely thanks to the impact the civil war of the 1990s had on the country's international reputation. The coastal areas offer easy access to fine sand beaches and offshore islands, little explored by foreign visitors and therefore unspoiled by commercial tourism. The capital, established by freed slaves from the Caribbean, represents a popular starting point for trips to Sierra Leone, with a colorful look to it, a lively atmosphere, and good onward connections to the mountains of the north and mangrove swamps and rainforest to the east.
