A different way to enjoy the city


Helsinki is a very walkable city and the main highlights are in the city center. But to cover a little bit more of our beautiful capital city, we can jump into a local tram.

Tram traffic started in Helsinki already in 1891. During last decades the network has expanded considerably and it is a very popular way of traveling in the city.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had only one full day in Helsinki, so we asked Lise to show us the most important sights. We walked and talked, covering the most important areas of Helsinki, and the dynamics of the Finnish and American histories and politics. We were awed by the Rock Church, amazed at Oodi, the incredible new library, and satiated at the Market. Afterwards, my sister-in-law and I went shopping, per Lise's directions, while the guys headed for our hotel. This was an incredible introduction to Finland. Thanks, Lise!
