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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo. Kansallisgalleria and Kamppi Chapel of Silence are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, snap pictures at Rakkauden Silta, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
