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.
Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Kotka (Lehman, Riverside Park, & more) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Fortress of Suomenlinna, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, and trek along Tulliniemi Nature Path.
