Helsinki, Finland

Getting to the charming capital of Finland, Helsinki, you, first of all, find yourself in a dynamic cosmopolitan metropolis with a surprisingly relaxed and peaceful vibe, as if you are somewhere outdoors, and this is not by chance! Helsinki is primarily famed for its streamlined groundbreaking design that's harmoniously incorporated in the greenery of its spacious parks and gardens which cover one-third of the city’s territory. However, this seemingly reserved hub with Nordic character is suitable not only for serene strolls, it has a lot of surprises to win over your heart! To catch the flavor of Helsinki, visit the most recognized structure in the city, the imposing Helsinki Cathedral, followed by the bustling central Market Square and the unusual Rock Church. Being a city of contrasts, at night silent Helsinki transforms into a vibrant scene full of dining venues and cozy bars waiting to give you a warm welcome!...

    Please, note: In order to drive a snowmobile please make sure to have your driver licence with you.
