Helsinki ©
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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Arctic Expedition. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and The Aalto House. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Heureka in Vantaa--about 32 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Sinebrychoff Art Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
