Helsinki

— 7 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.
Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Heureka in Vantaa, about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, don't miss a visit to Market Square Kauppatori, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Fort Lauderdale in April: high temperatures in Helsinki hover around 47°F and lows are around 32°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.

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."
