Adventurous Helsinki Weekend

Adventurous Helsinki Weekend

A multi-activity weekend in Helsinki keeps you busy and your adrenaline high but leaves you time also to check the most important sights. 

Helsinki  is called the daughter of the Baltic sea and Finland in general is full of lakes. All the most exciting summer activities here are somehow related to water. We have now made a plan with more activities you can actually fit in one long weekend so you will need to make choices between activities with similar characted: jet skiing or rib boating on sea, sailing or kayaking in the archipelago, canoeing-hiking or fatbiking in Nuuksio National park. 

Activities: 

1a) Jet skiing safari  takes you to the archipelago east of Helsinki. Driving is easy and fun. Each safari starts with a safety info and the group is led by a trained guide. The rental price includes an outfit (dry or wet suit, life west and shoes), a ski jet and gasoline.

1b) Rib boat safari  takes you by a high speed boat out to the Finnish archipelago. As you get a bit further out on sea this safari will satisfy your hunger for speed at the same time!  .

2) Guided cycle tour along the seaside  takes you around the town. The route depends on the hotel chosen so we can get west or east. Our guides picks you up from the hotel. Lunch will be included in the tour. 

3a) Midnight kayak tour  is recommended especially at the first half of summer, when the nights are light. The total paddling distance will be appr. 10km. This tour requires previous experience on kayaking so in case you have not tried it before, we cwould recommend to choose sailing. 

3b) 2-hour sailing tour  by Melges 24 sportboat on the waters of Helsinki. This tour is carried out by an experienced skipper. No need for previous experience but your participation is required. You will be sailing and the skipper Vertti will be teaching you. 

4a) Canoeing and hiking in Nuuksio National Park

Glide silently on Nuuksio Hawk Lake waters and observe the beauty of natural forest, rocky shores and dark water.Your paddling trip is sheltered from winds by the steep slopes around. On the way your guide will introduce to you the basics of this old Indian way of moving along the waterways of wild nature. At the other end of this small lake you will climb up the steep hillside and enjoy your snack viewing the natural environment. Relax and enjoy the natural environment of this typical lake in Nuuksio National Park. The Hawk Lake is only a very small lake, so the paddling distance is not long. This tour is more about enjoying the nature than covering long distance

4b) Fatbiking in Nuuksio National park

This is a private trip for all biking lovers! Our guide will introduce you to our fatbikes and to the route characteristics. The trails are mostly wide and easy, but may include some more challenging sections. On the way you will see typical features of the national park nature, including natural forests, lakes and rocky gorges. On the way you will make a stop, enjoy a snack and relax in the natural environment of the Nuuksio National Park.
