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 in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Santalahti Nature Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Kotka (Riverside Park, Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, & more). Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila.
