Cycling - Helsinki Weekend

A fascinating mix of urban capital, neighbouring Estonia and 1200km of cycle paths. Within a 30km radius there are two national parks, hundreds of islands, a UNESCO heritige site and a wonderful variety of landscapes.

Being the most northern capital of Continental Europe, Helsinki is a fascinating mix of historic grandeur and vibrant modern culture. While there are over a million people living in the Helsinki urban area, within a 30km radius there are two national parks, 1200 kms of bike paths, sevaral places of interest, hundreds of islands, and just a small part of Finland’s stunning coastline.

Included within the tour is a trip to neighbouring Estonia. With just a 2-hour ferry ride across the Gulf of Finland, you can be in the country’s enchanting capital city Tallin.

Note! You can easily add one of our other tours to your itinerary. For example, the shorter version of Turku Archipelago tour would work nicely before or after the Helsinki weekend.
