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 Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Nuuksio National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Haapasaari Island (in Kotka). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
