Vantaa

— 2 nights
Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
On the 27th (Mon), stop by Riimikko and then look for all kinds of wild species at Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Vantaa road trip tool.

Espoo

— 4 nights
Espoo is the second largest city and municipality in Finland. Step out of the city life by going to Arctic Expedition and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Explore hidden gems such as Gallen-Kallela Museum and Visavuori. Change things up with these side-trips from Espoo: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Church of St. Lawrence (in Lohja) and Fiskars Museum (in Fiskars). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Talomuseo Glims, engage your brain at The Finnish Museum of Horology, buy something for everyone on your list at Sello, and explore the engaging exhibits at Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenka.
