Helsinki ©
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.
Explore hidden gems such as Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Get in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Lehman, & more). Spend the 16th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
