Perched on a peninsula on the Gulf of Finland, Helsinki is nearly surrounded by water and islands, setting the stage for ideal cruising conditions. Whether you’re looking to spend a couple of hours or a whole day on the water, here are just some of the ways you can hop on a boat and set out to sea.
- Explore Helsinki by both land and water on a combination city tour and cruise that takes you past attractions, such as Korkeasaari Zoo.
- Take the ferry to Tallinn, Estonia, for the chance to visit another country in just one day.
- Travel through the archipelago of Helsinki on a private tour by high-speed boat.
- Set your eyes on the sea fortress of Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on a sightseeing cruise or a ferry ride to the island.
