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.
Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki road trip app.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
