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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila. Get outdoors at Bellevue Beach and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, explore the world behind art at Design Museum, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach.
