Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your tour with convenient pickup at your hotel in Helsinki at 8am or 10am, depending on your booked tour time. Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle with your small group of just 15 people or fewer and set out for the medieval town of Porvoo, which is located less than an hour's drive away. 

    Meet a local guide in Porvoo for a walking tour of the city center. See the charming, colorful wooden buildings that line the city's waterways, many under protected status. The city is popular for boating day trips in the summer and shopping for holiday crafts in the winter. Visit the Porvoo Cathedral and a local chocolate shop to taste the famous locally produced chocolate. Spend some free time in some of the city's waterfront bars and restaurants before continuing on to Loviisa. 

    Travel to Loviisa, where you'll visit the historical Red Salt warehouses, which have taken on new life as boutiques and restaurants. Snap photos of the town's historical wooden houses and the park's art benches. Stop by the Loviisa Cathedral and the Marina before boarding your vehicle for the trip back to Helsinki and drop-off at your original departure point.
