Kuusamo is a town and municipality in Finland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Syote National Park and Riisitunturi National Park. Bring the kids along to Kiutakongas Rapids and Hannu Hautala Nature Photography Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Kuusamo side-trips: Pieni Karhunkierros Trail (in Juuma) and Pentik Hill (in Posio). There's lots more to do: stop by Shopping Center Kumpare, wander the wide-open spaces of Kujala Reindeer Farm, and experience rural life at Palosaari Reindeer and Fishing Farm.

Daughter of the Baltic

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.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Porvoo (Castle Hill & Porvoo Old Town) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). Pack the 11th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenvuori, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
