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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Castle Hill, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Riverside Park). Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Ullanlinna, explore the striking landscape at Hiidenvuori, hike along Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen.
