0 reviews


Back in June 2021

Join this guided half-day tour from Helsinki to the idyllic town of Porvoo with its well-preserved wooden houses and picturesque cobble-stoned streets. The city's town plan is from the Middle Ages, the low small houses, picturesque yards and narrow streets form a historically unique wooden town milieu. The symbols of Porvoo – the red warehouses on the riverbanks – tell the story of seafaring and trading.

This guided half-day tour by bus begins and ends in Helsinki city centre. Porvoo is located 50 km (31 miles) away from Helsinki. The tour includes Helsinki-Porvoo-Helsinki by bus with a guide, a guided walk in Porvoo during which you will get familiar with the Old Town of Porvoo and the beautiful medieval cathedral. There will be some free time for a cup of coffee or lunch and a walk in the old town filled with delightful shops and craftsmen's workshops.
