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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Kotka (Lehman, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, & more). Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Fortress of Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Porvoo, see the interesting displays at Fagervik Museum, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.
