Helsinki: Archipelago RIB Boat Tour with BBQ Lunch and Sauna

1. Helsinki: Archipelago RIB Boat Tour with BBQ Lunch and Sauna

Meet our crew at Café Marina Bay, Kanavaranta 4, 00160 Helsinki. Depart after full passenger equipments and explore the vast archipelago located east of the capital. Discover some of the 170,000 islands by boat as your guide provides more information about local nature and wildlife. See the beautiful islands as we cruise and speed into the archipelago. Near the outskirts of the archipelago, reach the recreational island where you will disembark the boat and go ashore. Explore the island on a short walking tour and learn more about local flora and fauna. Overlooking the sea, hear more about how the archipelago developed after the last ice age. Then, enjoy a snack lunch outdoors if the weather allows. After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore the island. Visit the public sauna for a bath, swim in the sea, or enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings. Finally, hop back on the boat for the journey back to Helsinki. Drop-off is at the same location from where we started.

Sipoonkorpi National Park Half-Day Hike: Trolls’ Trail

2. Sipoonkorpi National Park Half-Day Hike: Trolls’ Trail

Escape the hustle and bustle of Helsinki on a half-day hike of the Sipoonkorpi National Park, and learn more about Finnish nature from a biologist guide. Transfer from Helsinki to Sipoonkorpi (just 25 kilometers from the city center) by public transport. On arrival, hike in wild coniferous forest, following a professional biologist guide who will tell you about Finnish nature and take you to curious geological formations hidden in the depth of the forest. Established to protect endangered animal and plant species of the taiga forest, Sipoonkorpi National Park also features traditional farmlands from the 13th century, numerous forest types, mires, bogs, and several small lakes. Hike the rugged terrain for approximately 3-3.5 hours as your guide explains how it was formed by the Ice Age thaw. In primeval times, the area was covered by sea and glaciers that ground the rocky shores to form unusual rock formations, now completely hidden in the wild forest. Hear about - and see - the “Trolls” or “Giants' Kettles.” Go to some of the park’s picturesque lakes, and more.

The walking pace was good and I enjoyed it very much. Since the temperature has already dropped to below zero in this season, it is necessary to take measures against cold. It takes about 45 minutes by public bus and walks 3 to 4 hours in the natural park.

A beautiful day in amazing woodland. Fabulous air and interesting nature. Our guide was full of information about plants, animals and rock formations and even bought a traditional snack for us to try.

An excellent day spent walking through the park. The guide, Mikhail was very informative with regards to the area, the wildlife and the nature in general. A very enjoyable time spent in the park.

the whole trip was a really good event, I can only recommend it - Leif, Patrik and his group of girls from Perpignon took care of us perfectly
