Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Kuhakoski Waterfall (in Nurmijarvi) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, stroll around The Esplanadi Park, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
