Approximately 7 Hours
Experience Finland in a day. See the city life, enjoy the views of the countryside and experience the hospitality of a Finnish family.
Pass Market Square, Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral and the Presidential Palace, with a brief stop at Senate Square. Your guide will point out the new Opera House, Finlandia Hall, the National Museum and the Parliament House.
Head out of town towards the Sipoo region and the Savijärvi Homestead, where the family greets you with traditional Finnish light lunch. See the horses that have been bred and trained here for three generations -- the equestrian industry at its finest. In the family dining room, a homemade light lunch will be served and, weather permitting, you can enjoy your coffee and dessert on the terrace.
Stop in the village of Porvoo -- its medieval character is evident in the cobblestone streets and wooden buildings.
Return to Helsinki with a stop at the rather fascinating Rock Church, carved into bedrock.
You will encounter cobblestone surfaces at Senate Square. It is a 400-yard walk uphill from the coach parking to the Rock Church. In the event that a special function is being held here, an inside visit will not be possible. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Up to one mile of walking is required in Porvoo, including cobblestones, and steps. There are stairs at Savijärvi Farm and paths over gravel and grass. Tour is available only on select sailings. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
