DAY EXCURSION - Helsinki Sightseeing & RIB boating the Archipelago

Day Trips & Port Excursions

Helsinki Sightseeing & RIB boating the Fisherman's Archipelago 

SUMMER PROGRAM (May - September)

DURATION: 5-6 hours

Finnish people's dream is to spend their summers by the lake or seaside, in a private cabin or in the islands.  With our excursion into the Islands to the East of Helsinki, guests experience what the Archipelago looks like.

The Archipelago consists of tens of thousands of Islands all around Finland, one of the largest of its kind in the world.  

With collection from Helsinki city centre, our trip starts by visiting the classic sights of Helsinki, including the Helsinki Lutheran Cathedral, Senate Square, Harbour market area and perhaps Sibelius Monument or Church in the Rock (depends a little on time and opening hours).  Helsinki sightseeing drive is approximately 1.5 hours.

Your driver will then take you to the shoreline, where you jump aboard one of the safest boats on the sea.  Visiting the shoreline to the remote islands by Tornado RIB boat, some of which are inhabited year round!  Mostly they consist of seaside summer cottages and saunas, with the mainland caostline dotted with large stately homes of some of Finland's prominant businessmen and Politicians.

Stopping at one of the quiet islands for snacks and drinks, or during the middle of the summer at the island cafe for homemade fish soup from one of the original and last remaining fishing families in the area!

This excursion offers insight in to the life of the islanders and a chance for guests to experience the Finnish forests on the island, picking wild blueberries and lingonberries, spotting rare mushrooms along the way.

The pace of the RIB is set by the group and the driver at the time of departure, making sure that all guests are happy, comfortable and confident.  Equipment for the weather is provided, including warm suits and boots if needed during colder part of the season.  We can offer boat driver languages of English, German, Danish (conversational), Swedish and Finnish.  Other languages guides can be added by request.

This program is also available for off shore, high speed RIB boating - please contact us for a tailor made program.
