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 Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Aurlahti Beach. Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Kotka (Riverside Park, Linden Esplanade, &more) and Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach). Pack the 11th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
