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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Fagervik Museum. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Katajanokka, take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, tour the pleasant surroundings at Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, and get outside with Arctic Expedition.
