Helsinki Plus: Helsinki and Lapland in four Days

Helsinki Plus: Helsinki and Lapland in four Days

All the essential about Finnish winter! Ice-hockey, frozen sea and the main sights of Helsinki on a culinary walk keeping you warm. A flight to the northernmost Finland takes you directly to a dinner table in the middle of Finnish design and Arctic nature. Not forgetting the reindeers and huskies! This effective, high class program suits well as a weekend program for small groups from 5 to 12 people.

Helsinki  in January most often is also very cold. You will get on a culinary walk in the city centre right after your arrival. Your native English guide will take you from the largest food hall in the city to the smallest local deli; the market hall and the market place; raw food and local foodYou’ll get stories about Helsinki and Finnish Food as we enjoy a meal on the go!  We’ll focus on food and design, and you’ll get plenty of Helsinki stories, both from the recent past to long ago

Icehockey is the national sport and as Finland has one of the best ice-hockey teams in the world, also the local league is very high-class. You will see an exciting local game Espoo Blues versus Helsinki IFK.

Sea fortress Suomenlinna is an impressive witness of the Finnish history. It is listed among the Unesco World Heritage sites.  You will take a ferry to Suomenlinna, where you will have a guided tour.  You will walk through the fortifications and hear fascinating stories about fortress life in past and about Finnish history. From the boat you will have a great opportunity to see Helsinki from the see.

The northernmost Lapland  gives you the most authentic view of Lapland. You will arrive in Ivalo, where our driver is waiting for you. He will take you to Design House Idoli, which is located by lake Inari and has an extensive collection of best Finnish design in their sales exhibition. After taking a look you will sit down for a dinner prepared from local wild food. After dinner you will sit in a Lappish hut made of glass, have sparkling wine and enjoy the winter sky, which on a clear night might offer you a light show of auroras.

Next day you can sleep long and by midday have a refreshing walk to the Sámi Museum Siida. On the way you can pop in to see the Sámi parliament Sajos, which is also a great example of modern wood architecture. After the museum you will have a visit to a reindeer farm. In case you did not see the northern lights yet on te previous night, we'll give you another chance on a late night snowshoeing tour.

The husky tour we always place last in our programs. Why? Because we want to save the program creating most memories last. Our guests say it is hard to describe the feeling of mushing your own team of huskies in the wilderness. You will only have 2 hours for this experience so you won't get far but we are sure you will have fun.
