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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa--about 30 minutes away. The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
