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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Room Escape Games and Hakaniemi Market. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo (Castle Hill & Porvoo Old Town). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the different monuments and memorials at Hietaniemi Cemetery, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and make a trip to The Esplanadi Park.

Finland's third largest city, Tampere boasts an array of cultural offerings and a lively music scene.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower and Tampere Cathedral. Venture out of the city with trips to Mantta-Vilppula (Serlachius Museum Gustaf & Serlachius Museum Gosta). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, pause for some serene contemplation at Finlayson Church, and enjoy the sand and surf at Rauhaniemi Beach.
