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 Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kuhakoski Waterfall (in Nurmijarvi), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenkirnut.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online road trip planner.
