Helsinki with a sailing tour 1-12 people

Helsinki with a sailing tour 1-12 people

BEST WESTERN PREMIUM Hotel Katajanokka  used to be a prison, now it is a modern, high-quality hotel. Katajanokka is located by the sea south of the market place in a walking distance from the city center. In the hotel and its neighborhood there are many restaurants to choose from. To give you a freedom to choose, we did not include dinners in the travel package.

Helsinki  is a beautiful seaside city. It has to be seen from the sea. 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 there you might want to stop on the island of Lonna, which is finally also open for visits.

Hardly anything is more enjoyable than sailing and fresh sear air. You will sail east from Helsinki. The route depends on the weather and the sailing experience of the participants. Your captain will choose the route. Tour starts by a half an hour introduction to saililng. Previous experience on sailing is not necessary.

The heart of the city you will learn to know either from the perspective of food or music. On Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays we are offering a culinary walk, which will end up in Kiasma. On Mondays 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.
