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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Porvoo (Fredrika Runebergs Park, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). Pack the 25th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church.
