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.
Head to Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatorifor plenty of shopping. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path), Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, and hike along Santalahti Nature Trail.
