Helsinki ecologically for 1-8 people

Helsinki ecologically for 1-8 people

Enjoy Helsinki ecologically! Live by the seaside. Paddle on the sea. Visit  the historic fortress of Suomenlinna. Take a look at the city center from a culinary or musical perspective.

Hotel Rantapuisto  is located in Vuosaari, only 20 minutes from the city center by the sea. The hotel is recently opened after renovation. It has an own beach next to the paddling center. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful nature offering good opportunities for outdoor life. In summertime it is possible to take a boat trip directly from Vuosaari to the idyllic town of Porvoo or the lighthouse of Söderskär as well as towards to city to Hakaniemi.

Helsinki  you will get to know our capitol by the sea ecologically using well-functioning public transfer as well as by kayaking and by foot. You will visit the fortress of Suomenlinna on an island in front the city center and enjoy a picnic there among the locals. On the way back you may stop on the island of Lonna, which is to be opened to the public in spring 2015. 

The heart of the city you will learn to know either from the perspective of food or music. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we are offering a culinary walk, which will end up in Kiasma. On Wednesdays and Fridays (until 7.8.) you may alternatively choose a music tour, which will end up in Musiikkitalo (= house of music), where you will listen to the Sibelius Finland Experience concert for two pianos.

Suomenlinna  was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list as a unique monument of military architecture in 1991. The construction work started in 1748 during the Swedish era and took 40 years. The fortress was given a name Sveaborg, in Finnish it was called Viapori. It was never involved in actual battles. In 1808, after a mysterious surrender Viapori was besieged by the Russian forces in the Russo-Swedish war.
