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.
Helsinki is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

Although many Koli National Park tours revolve around the majestic natural landscape, there are still plenty of things to see and do for those pursuing culture and heritage.
When in Koli National Park, make a side trip to see Paalasmaan Surukivi in Juuka, approximately Juuka away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Paateri, explore the activities along Pielinen, trek along Akka-Koli Hill, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kolinuuron kierros Nature Trail.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, read Koli National Park visit planner.
