Helsinki ©
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.
Popular historic sites such as Mannerheim Museum and Pohjolan toimitalo are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Uutelan luontopolku. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
