Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park, Kaitalampi, & more) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo.
