Helsinki

— 8 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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Haapasaari Island (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 12th (Tue) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), stroll around The Esplanadi Park, enjoy the music at Salon Taidemuseo Veturitalli, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
