Tour description provided by Viator

When your cruise ship docks in Helsinki, enjoy a shore excursion and experience the beauty of this stunning Nordic city. On this city sightseeing tour, learn about the city’s history and culture from your knowledgeable guide. This tour is a great way to get orientated with the city, particularly for first-time visitors!

While in port in Helsinki, spend your time exploring the most interesting parts of the city on this sightseeing shore excursion! Founded in 1550, Helsinki’s historical center provides you with amazing sights like Senate Square, City Hall, the Parliament building and Finlandia Hall. Visit Helsinki’s National Opera House and the Presidential Palace, rebuilt by German architect Carl Ludvig Engel, the creator of neoclassical Helsinki.

Stop at the wave-like Sibelius Monument, an artistic formation of 600 hollow steel pipes constructed in honor of Jean Sibelius. When possible, your tour will also include a stop at Temppeliaukio Church, an impressive church that was built into a natural rock wall.

This excursion is located within a 30-minute walk of the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Helsinki. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
