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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna will appeal to museum buffs. Visiting Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.
