Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy (in Pernio), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Spend the 6th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 10th (Mon) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Valkmusa National Park, stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
