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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Stromforsin ruukki and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Visiting Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail will get you outdoors. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Kotka (Riverside Park & Lehman), Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 14th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Rock Church, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
