Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This whirlwind half-day tour gives you a tantalizing taste of Finland's capital and largest city. Take in a selection of Helsinki's main highlights, with time for an unforgettable and completely unique visit to one of the world's largest ice bars.

Board your comfortable motorcoach for the short drive past Embassy Park and the bustling city harbor, stopping for a photo opportunity along with some free time at Senate Square, where the impressive Government Palace and elegant Lutheran Cathedral hold court. You will also get a chance to catch a glimpse of Uspenski Cathedral, an Eastern Orthodox cathedral dramatically set on a hillside overlooking the city.

Continue on with a short ride to one of the world's largest ice bars. And it is not only the bar, but also the walls, tables, even your own drinking glass that are carved from crystal clear ice! Upon arrival, you'll receive warm clothing that will keep you toasty as you enjoy this winter wonderland. Hold out your ice glass for a pour of the coldest vodka you'll ever experience. There will be time to browse this truly extraordinary environment. Various Finnish winter activities are available to try; take a turn at skiing, tobogganing, kick sledding, even (for an additional fee, when available) an authentic husky dog sled ride! Photo opportunities abound at this attraction, and you'll certainly have stories to tell your friends at home!

Following your icy adventure, climb back onto your cozy motorcoach for the warm ride back to downtown Helsinki. You will cruise down fashionable Mannerheim Street, which is Helsinki's main street. Here you will be able to see the Opera House, Parliament House, the National Museum and Finlandia Hall, the concert and convention center designed by renowned architect Alvar Aalto. You'll also pass Kiasma, the striking Contemporary Art museum designed by the American architect Steven Holl, which contains the contemporary art collection of the Finnish National Gallery.
