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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. Change things up with a short trip to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa (about 30 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and take a memorable drive along King's Road.
