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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nuuksio National Park and Katajanokka. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Temppeliaukio Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Espoo (Arctic Expedition & Kaitalampi), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable tour with Tours, stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
