Recommended Port Adventures in Helsinki, Finland

Recommended Port Adventures in Helsinki, Finland


Of the 19 excursions offered by Disney Cruise Line, here are our recommended port adventures for first-time visitors to Helsinki:

Low Budget: City tours are the least expensive shore excursions offered. Panoramic Helsinki (HE08, $49/$24 ages 3-9, 2-2.5 hours) is a basic bus tour that gives a brief overview of the major sights. For the same price, City of Helsinki (HE07, $49/$29 ages 3-9, 3-3.5 hours) adds a tour of the Rock Church. 

Big Budget: If you're into art and design, Visit to Björn Weckström (HE34, $349 ages 12 and up, 3-3.5 hours) may cost you more than the price of the tour. Maybe much more. You'll meet the sculptor and tour his art collection, and though there's no mention of a gift shop... http://www.bjornweckstrom.com/  Both RIB boat excursions are pricey, and though it's 30-60 minutes longer and includes an interpretive talk at a summer cottage, we're still not sure why High-Speed Archipelago Experience (HE35, $489 ages 7 and up, 3-4 hours) costs $230 more than the version listed next.

Active: Experience the islands that surrounds Helsinki on Archipelago Speed Boat Adventure (HE11, $259/$239 ages 8-9, 2.5-3 hours). You’ll get to see some of the city’s sights and picnic on one of the many islands. Want to see more of the city? Try out Helsinki Nordic Walking (HE10, $79 ages 12 and up, 2.5-3 hours), a traditional Finnish activity, or hop on Helsinki by Jopo Bike (HE33, $79 ages 10 and up, 3-3.5 hours). Both excursions will lead you past the major sights. Note that you should be in good physical shape.

Armchair: A relaxing way to see Helsinki is by taking a 90-minute scenic cruise along the city’s bay, inlets, and islands, which is a great option if you have little ones. Add that to a bus tour and you have Helsinki from Land & Sea (HE05, $109/$79 ages 3-9/$70 ages 0-2, 4-4.5 hours). Helsinki and Old Town Porvoo (HE13, $89/$69 ages 3-9, 5.5-6 hours) combines the city with a walking tour of Finland’s second oldest town. Finnish Countryside Home Visit and Helsinki Highlights (HE04, $109/$79 ages 3-9, 4-4.5 hours) shows you the major sights and brings you to a private farm in nearby Sipoo.

Nature/Cultural: Haltia Nature Centre and Nuuksio Forest Walk (HE16, $99/$79 ages 5-9, 4.5-5 hours) celebrates both Finnish architecture and the nation''s rugged beauty. The Nature Center's noteworthy for it's all-wood design and striking exhibits, and you'll enjoy a 75-minute guided walk through the National Park.
