Midsummer weekend from Helsinki - been to Stockholm, Tallinn, Turku, Porvoo

Jump to last reply

My summer plans are firming up. I will be working in Helsinki the week before and after Midsummer. Last time this happened, I spent the weekend at a lake home with a colleague. This time I will be on my own. Rather than spend more time in Helsinki, I would like to use the weekend to see something new.

Previously, I've explored the Helsinki area, taken a day trip to Tallinn, flown to Stockholm for the weekend, taken the train to Turku, and taken the bus to Porvoo. After I finish my work this year, I will be heading to Stockholm for a couple of days, then on to the fjord area around Myrdal/Flam in Norway for a week.

Where should I go for my free weekend? I enjoy scenic beauty, historic sites, traditional music and crafts, and walking.

For $200 I could fly roundtrip to Copenhagen or St Petersburg. I checked the train to St Petersburg, but I don't think the times will suit--leaves too early on Friday.
Any place else that I should be considering for a short visit (Friday evening - Sunday evening preferable, though I could travel Saturday morning and return very early Monday morning). Somwhere else in Sweden? Norway? the Baltics?
