24 Hours In… Helsinki
Slide Nr 6
2pm: Take In The Great Outdoors – Regardless of season and weather, Helsinki is a city of nature and the outdoors. Surrounded by two national parks and hundreds of islands, there are countless opportunities to get a glimpse of Finnish nature, even on a short trip. In the wintertime, grab some ice skates or snowshoes and explore the frozen shoreline, or hop on a boat and check out the island fortress of Suomenlinna. In summer, rent a kayak and paddle away. Alternatively, take a boat ride to the islands of Vallisaari or Pihlajasaari and hang out on the beach.
