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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Artisaani. Get outdoors at Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Pack the 14th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, get outside with King's Road, and look for gifts at Taiga Colors.
