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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Turku (Bike Rental - by Carfield & Turku Castle) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). see Sarkanniemi Theme Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get in on the family fun at Linnanmaki Amusement Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, and make a trip to Senate Square.

For reviews, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planner.
