Easy Trips

THIS MONTH... warm up in Malta and Ibiza, go walking in Herefordshire, learn a new skill in Paris or Lisbon, and take to the waters in Helsinki

HELSINKI, FINLAND

A strong Finnish

Start by taking the ferry to Suomenlinna, a former island fortress a 15-minute chug away that’s now home to cafés, museums, restaurants and a brewery. Once you’ve finished ambling its cannon-lined perimeter, return to the city to indulge in that most Finnish of activities: the sauna.
