Helsinki Sightseeing Canal Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Board your sightseeing boat in central Helsinki, and settle into the comfortable cabin or find a spot on the outdoor deck.
    Then, sit back and admire the sights as you sail by Helsinki’s waterfronts and islands. Around 62 miles (100 kilometers) of picturesque coastline extend out from the city, as does an archipelago of around 330 islands, each offering a quiet escape from the Finnish capital’s bustle.
    As you cruise, hear fascinating facts about Helsinki’s colorful history and the passing sights from the on board commentary. Watch for Korkeasaari Island, the site of Helsinki Zoo; and pass the UNESCO-listed Suomenlinna Maritime Fortress: an immense 18th-century edifice that straddles several smaller islands. Snap photos of this sturdy outpost and learn how the Swedes built it as a military defense during the Russo-Swedish War.
    Sip on a drink from the onboard bar (own expense) as you sail into the Degerö Canal. Behold the beautiful scenery along this man-made waterway — constructed in the late 1800s to provide an easier passage to one of Helsinki’s inner archipelagos.
    Have your camera ready as you drift by Helsinki’s fleet of icebreaker ships. These massive vessels help to keep Finland’s seaports open during winter and make an impressive sight.
    After your roughly 1.5-hour cruise, arrive back at the starting dock where your trip ends.

    I felt a little misguided with the picture. I thought it would be a quaint boat, not so much. It was a beautiful day though 😀 you do go through one canal 😳

    The price is too high considering that you do not actually see much, just green islands from far away.

    We compared the routes of the various sightseeing cruise options around Helsinki and found this one most extensive. We went to the little ticket office on the pier to make sure we didn't get confused with the various online booking agents and tour operators. Plenty...More
