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 outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Arboretum Mustila in Elimaki, about 1h 50 min away. Pack the 22nd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Helsinki Zoo, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, head outdoors with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto, and take a memorable tour with Tours.
