Helsinki Sailing Tour


Helsinki's archipelago offers great opportunities for unique nature experiences. The best way to see Helsinki is from the sea.

I will drive you to the small idyllic yacht harbor in Kulosaari, about 10 minutes from the city center by car. At the yacht harbor you will be equipped with sailing gear, and short introduction to sailing is given by me.

We will then leave the harbor and sail towards the city while enjoying the views the wind and hopefully the sun. There are many routes to choose from, and I will explain what you can see on the shoreline. We can sail around Suomenlinna fortress island and even have a short break on the island if you want.

During the tour you can enjoy complimentary sandwiches and drinks on the boat. The sailing tour can end in the city, or on one of the many islands around Helsinki. You do not have to be experienced in sailing to do this tour. Anyone can join this tour.
