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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas & Wellness and Korkeasaari Zoo. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, see the interesting displays at Design Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
