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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Teijo national park and Hakaniemi Market. Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Evo Hiking Area (in Haemeenlinna). Spend the 7th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. On the 13th (Mon), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Mielakka Ski Center. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenvuori, browse the exhibits of Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo, and trek along Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area.
