Helsinki Highlights

Curated Activities – The Best of Helsinki

Private Helsinki Walking Tour

A view of central Helsinki from the bay.

With proximity to Russia and Sweden, this Nordic capital has an eclectic mix of architecture and fairly recent history for Europe, having been founded in the early 19th century. Strict limits on high rises have preserved the Old World feel. With a compact old town full of history, Helsinki is a perfect city to walk. – by Get Your Guide

A comfy commuter train ride brings you to Finland’s Nuuksio National park. Enjoy a nature walk with a biologist who uncovers the secrets of the ancient Nordic forest. Bring warm/dry clothes for your return on board. – by Get Your Guide

Snowmobile the Archipelago

Two men snowmobiling on the archipelago outside of Helsinki, Finland.

What better way to embrace the cold weather of Scandinavia than a fun day trip outside the city on a snowmobile? You’ll ride a forest trail either as a passenger or a driver, your choice. Finish with a campfire lunch and drinks. – by Viator

Day Trip to Estonia

A walkway with gothic architecture in Estonia.

A 2 hour ferry ride is worth the time when you get to Tallinn, the quaint and historically preserved capital of Estonia. Old Town is the focus, but this high tech town is sister city to, of all places, Los Gatos in California. – by Get Your Guide

Helsinki and Suomenlinna Island

Being right on the Baltic Sea, Helsinki is a water-focused city. After seeing city highlights, a ferry to beautiful Suomenlinna Island is a treat. Lunch on the waterfront is a highlight. – by Viator
