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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Arctic Expedition (in Espoo) and Kuhakoski Waterfall (in Nurmijarvi). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To see photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planning site.
