Helsinki

— 6 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.
Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

In June, Helsinki is a bit cooler than Seattle - with highs of 65°F and lows of 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to fly 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."
