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.
Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 11th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 12th (Thu) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
