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.
Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Kotka (Riverside Park, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Spend the 28th (Sat) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. The adventure continues: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, and experience rural life at Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy.
