Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
You'll explore and learn at Maritime Centre Vellamo and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of Porvoo and Hame Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Vantaa: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Brunberg Candy Factory Shop), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Hiidenvuori (in Iitti). Spend the 4th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Finnish Aviation Museum, step off the mainland to explore Lehman, and take a stroll through Linden Esplanade.
