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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sapokka Water Garden and Maritime Centre Vellamo. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Cathedral of Porvoo, &more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, wander the streets of Katajanokka, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, and step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Helsinki fast, fun, and easy.
