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 in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Museum-lovers will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Riverside Park (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: hike along Tulliniemi Nature Path, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
