Helsinki— 30 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 get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Hietaranta Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Serena Water Park), Kotka (Fort Slava & Sapokka Water Garden) and Siltakyla (Valkmusa National Park & Huutjarvi Lake). Pack the 5th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Teijo national park. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and kick back and relax at Aurlahti Beach.
