Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrival Helsinki

Arrival to Helsinki-Vantaa airport and pick-up your rental car. Drive to Helsinki and get to know the city. We recommend a visit to some of the most important sights such as the Senate Square, the Uspenskij Cathedral, Parliament House, Finlandia Hall, the Sibelius Park & Monument and the Temppeliaukio church. Overnight at the hotel in Helsinki.

Day 2 : Helsinki – Porvoo

Breakfast at the hotel. In the morning free time to explore more of Helsinki. We recommend a visit to the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, included in Unesco’s World Heritage List. The fortress was established in 1748, and is just 15 minutes by ferry from Helsinki’s Market Square. Drive to Porvoo, the second oldest town of Finland. The driving route follows The King’s Road, which is one of the most significant travel routes in the Nordic countries, and follows an old postal route. The road has been used by kings and their couriers, bishops and townsmen, artists and armies ever since the 1300s. Mansions, farms, taverns, alehouses and inns that housed and accommodated travellers arose all along the King's Road. Today the King's Road is a network of fascinating travel services but some stretches of the original road are still in use. The total length of the road is 253 km. On the way to Porvoo, it is possible to visit Haikko Manor, the home of the famous painter Albert Edelfelt and the old church of Sipoo, built in the 15 th century. Arrive at Porvoo and explore the Old Town by foot. Take a walk around the well-preserved wooden houses, visit the medieval church, and the Town Hall Square. Stay the night at a small, elegant boutique hotel in the heart of the picturesque Old Town of Porvoo. Overnight at the hotel in Porvoo. (B)

Day 3 : Porvoo –Turku

Breakfast at the hotel. Depart from Porvoo, and drive to Turku, the oldest town of Finland and a former capital. Turku is located on the shores of the river Aura. The southwest of Finland offers ancient cultural traditions as this is where the recorded history of Finland begins and where the oldest traces of habitation have been found. The driving route to Turku goes along The King’s Road, with the possibility of some extra kilometres if you take the deviation to Hanko for a visit to Finland’s southernmost point, which is certainly worth doing. Arrive at Turku, famous for an active cultural scene and maritime atmosphere. We recommend visits to the Castle of Turku from the XIII century, the Luostarinmäki outdoor & crafts museum, and the Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum complex. We can also recommend a visit to the Ruissalo Island and the Botanical Gardens of the University of Turku. Overnight at the hotel in Turku. (B)

Day 4 : Turku –Naantali – Tuusula

This morning proceed for a short drive to Naantali. Naantali could also be called Finland’s oficial summer holiday city because the Kultaranta Estate, the summer residence of the President of Finland, is located here. The Moomin World theme park makes Naantali a top spot for children and families. Walk in the Old town of Naantali, see the medieval church and visit the gardens with 3.500 roses at the Kultaranta Estate. In the late afternoon drive to Tuusula which is located at a convenient distance to the Helsinki-Vantaa airport for next day’s departure flight. Arrival to the Krapi Estate, which is located amid a prestigious cultural environment in Tuusula and offers a hotel, restaurants, a chimneyless sauna and a large park area with a wide variety of activities. Krapi is located right at the beginning of the first Finnish Museum Road (Tuusula Rantatie). Homes of many famous artists of the turn of the century, who were actively involved in the forming of the Finnish national identity, can be found along this road. Overnight at the hotel in Tuusula. (B)

Day 5 : Depart Tuusula – Helsinki – Vantaa Airport

Possibility to enjoy the peace of the Krapi area. If time permits before your flight departure, it is possible to visit some of the interesting cultural sights and museums along the Tuusulan Rantatie. Drive to Helsinki – Vantaa airport and return the car. (B)
