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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Kids will enjoy Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Brunberg Candy Factory Shop). Pack the 10th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 11th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market, tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurlahti Beach, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach.
