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 Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, wander the streets of Katajanokka, stroll through The Esplanadi Park, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
