Helsinki

— 11 nights

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Pack the 28th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 2nd (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, look for all kinds of wild species at Hiidenvuori, and don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town.
