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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Stromforsin ruukki and Rock Church. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach).

The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
