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 the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Temppeliaukio Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
