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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, stroll through The Esplanadi Park, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
