Beautiful nature in Helsinki coastal areas by bike


What could be more convenient than to explore Helsinki by bike! We don't have any heavy industries in Helsinki area, the air is fresh and the nature is clean and green. WHO just ranked Finland to have the cleanest air in the world!

Our tour will start in the city center and it partly runs along the coastline. During the tour you will see the most popular attractions combined with nature.
The cycling paths in Helsinki are numerous and in good condition. Helsinki dwellers are accustomed bikers. Some brave people even bike in winter, our tour will, however, be operated from early spring until autumn.
This is truly a nice way of exploring Helsinki and, in addition, it is healthy.
We will bike slowly to be able to observe the surroundings and the length of our bike tour is approximately 6, 5 miles (10 kilometres) and we will have breaks during the tour and enjoy coffee/ beverages.

This tour can be customized to be shorter/longer and please inquire for a customized tour for a larger group.
