Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa--about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Senate Square, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.

To see other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki sightseeing planning website.
