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

Spring is a fine time to take the plunge in Helsinki, with the last of the snow clouds disappearing over the horizon and the ice that clad the Finnish capital’s shores over winter thawing for the year. 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. Löyly, the ultimate study in the use of pine, is a striking addition to the waterfront. After stints in its dry and smoke rooms, make like a local and leap into the brisk waters of the Baltic outside. You can recover with elk meatballs and a Finnish lager in the adjoining restaurant.

About Lonely Planet Traveller (UK)

In the May issue… We're spilling some travel secrets. Northeast India is the country's most overlooked corner – follow us on a Great Escape here to see rhinoceroses and meet hill-country villagers whose not-so-distant ancestors were headhunters. New Zealand's North Island may be better known, but using a campervan to get around opens up unforeseen vistas and possibilities. In other features, Northern Ireland proves to be a surprising gastronomic destination, while Casablanca's status as Morocco's largest city – yet one that features on few travellers' itineraries – means its Art Deco-era treasures hide in plain sight. Plus, discover 24 fantastic places to stay this spring, and much more
