Helsinki

— 13 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Heureka) and Espoo (Arctic Expedition, Stora Herro Island, &more). Pack the 21st (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, stroll through Laajalahti Nature Reserve, and don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market.
