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.
Explore hidden gems such as Bellevue Beach and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Linden Esplanade. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park & Fagervik Church), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church.
