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.
Escape the urban bustle at Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stromforsin ruukki and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Riverside Park, Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, & more) and Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park, Raseborg Castle, & more). Spend the 21st (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Spend the 24th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's much more to do: expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
