Spend the 7th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
