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.
Explore hidden gems such as Bellevue Beach and Arboretum Mustila. Get in touch with nature at Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Rock Church, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenvuori, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
