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.
Visiting Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum capture your imagination. Step out of Helsinki to go to Elimaki and see Arboretum Mustila, which is approximately 1h 45 min away. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Finland, and deepen your understanding of the past and present with Norman Travels.
