Helsinki

— 4 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.
Head to Old Market Hall and Liopro Finland - Handmade Souvenirfor some retail therapy. Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Venture out of the city with trips to Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and head outdoors with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto.
