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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukion Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Castle Hill (in Porvoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 8th (Sun) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. Spend the 18th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, walk around Riverside Park, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and identify plant and animal life at Laajalahti Nature Reserve.
