Private City Tour

After breakfast, your personal car, driver and guide will be waiting to show you the highlights of their beloved home town – starting with Senate Square, flanked by the neoclassical architecture of Helsinki University and the Council of State and dominated by the imposing green domes of the Lutheran Cathedral of Finland, completed in 1852. Then drive along Mannerheim Street, one of Helsinki’s bustling main thoroughfares, where you’ll see the impressive Parliament House and Finlandia Hall, the strikingly contemporary concert and convention venue designed by noted Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. Continue past the Contemporary Art Museum, Opera House and the Olympic Stadium built for the 1952 games to Sibelius Park where a steel and stone monument honors the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Your sightseeing ends with a guided tour of the unusual Temppeliaukio Rock Church, built inside a rocky outcrop. The rest of the afternoon and evening are free to enjoy and explore at your own pace.  Meals B

Discover Historic Porvoo + Experience Rural Life

Today’s specially planned foray into Finland’s rich history and its enduring traditions begins in the ancient town of Porvoo, founded in 1346 at the mouth of the Porvoo River. Accompanied by your personal guide, you’ll begin on the Old Bridge with its fine views of the town’s riverfront storehouses. Continue with a walking tour along the narrow winding lanes of the historic district as your expert guide sheds light on Porvoo’s history as an important trading center during the Middle Ages. You’ll also have some free time to explore the inviting shops and galleries at your own pace before driving onward along the King’s Road to the timeless rural enclave of Sipoo.
 
By special arrangement, you’ll spend time on a family-run horse-breeding farm. After a warm welcome by the owners, you’ll tour the farm, meet the horses and gain genuine insight into daily life here in the Finnish countryside. Enjoy a congenial home-cooked lunch with your hosts before returning to Helsinki along a scenic coastal road. Back in the capital, the balance of your afternoon and the evening are yours to enjoy as you wish.  Meals B+L
