Finnish Design and Shopping


Finnish design is beautifully Nordic, and yet it still has a unique history and many distinct features to discover. On this private tour we can take a stroll through the best Finnish design shops, talk about the Finnish lifestyle and the history of Finnish design and famous design companies. We can also visit a couple of famous Helsinki landmarks on the way if you desire.

You can let me know in advance what type of shoping interests you the most, whether you are looking for bold finnish print and textiles, distinct finnish fashion iteams, delicate ceramics and glass, traditionally hand crafted wooden or metal items or anything else you have in mind.
