5. Discover the beauty and tranquility of the more hidden Helsinki & Espoo archipelago
Take note on these island gems our team listed, that have yet been spared from the larger masses of tourists:
Vallisaari island: Incredibly pretty island, wild nature. Take a picnic lunch with you from the market square and enjoy it on one of the beaches.
Lammassaari island: Take a walk on the Duckboards (narrow walkway made of wooden planks) to this more hidden island in the northeast side of the city.
Espoo archipelago: Have one day off from the city and head towards the Espoo archipelago. Boats are available from several locations, see more here:https://www.visitespoo.fi/en/scheduled-archipelago-boats/. Camping is also a great idea on some of these islands.
