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.
Attractions like Arboretum Mustila and Tulliniemi Nature Path make great kid-friendly stops. Popular historic sites such as Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Riverside Park, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 24th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 25th (Thu) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, get in on the family fun at Linnanmaki Amusement Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
