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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Kids will appreciate attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Aurlahti Beach. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and play a few rounds at Tapiola Golf.
