European Stopover & City Map

AT YOUR SERVICE. This is a great idea for experiencing Helsinki where you can choose your preferred level of accommodation. It can, of course, be modified and/or extended. As we are experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests, time available and budget, we at Goway are at your service!

Stay 4 nights in Helsinki, a city that combines being something of an international metropolis while still retaining a small-town feel.

Start your sightseeing with a private city tour which includes Esplanade Park in the heart of the city, Helsinki Cathedral, a beautiful and historically significant Evangelical Lutheran church, Senate Square dominated by four buildings designed by Carl Ludvig Enge, the Government Palace, the Sibelius Monument in Sibelius Park which resembles organ pipes with a bust of the composer on one side, Temppeliaukio Church, one of Helsinki’s most popular tourist attractions as it is underground and was hewn from a rock and Suommenlina Fortress, one of the largest sea fortresses in the world and located on an island.

The following morning, head out of Helsinki and drive to Porvoo, Finland's second oldest town and a beautiful city full of history with its timeless and unique atmosphere. You will have free time to explore Porvoo.

Your final full day in Helsinki will show a different side of the city. Start with a visit to the Design District, full of fascinating shops, galleries and museums. The Arabianranta district is where you will discover that art is a part of everyday life. Then take the streetcar passing by Hietalahti Market Hall which provides a broad variety of fresh foods, Sinebrychoff Art Museum with its collection of old masters, the National Gallery, Helsinki University Botanical Garden, Arabiakeskus design store and the interesting Tapiola Wirrkala Park.
