During the 3h trip you will discover wonderful Helsinki archipelago and secret places that can only be reached with a small boat while sitting in comfortable leather seats or laying on a sundeck feeling and hearing the waves while extremely quiet engine is running. Boat has a removable ROOF and a small HEATER so weather will not be an issue. First we will leave from Tervasaari and continue towards the UNESCO World Heritage Suomenlinna Fortress while driving through beautiful natural canal. After seeing fortress optionally you can take the helm of the boat and learn to drive and rip through the waves! Then we will explore an island where you will experience the beautiful nature. We might find and taste some mushrooms and berries in late summer. Then we will speed up the boat and shortly reach legendary Kaivopuisto area. On our way back you will see our 2 main churches, old market hall, market place, sailing clubs and embassies. Then we will reach massive ice brakers and beautiful Jugend style view of the city. Then its about to see authentic Finnish-legendary sauna! The sauna is a wood-burning self-service public sauna, a destination for Helsinki natives built and maintained by a group of volunteers. If you like you get in to the sauna and swim in the sea. (swimsuit optional). If you want to you can participate by cutting fire wood and collecting water just like in old days.
I am founder of nature travel company Helsinkiboats. I have been boating since I was 8 years old in Lapland, Helsinki region and also in Sydney Australia. I know the coast of Helsinki and the archipelago like the back of my pockets. The best kept secrets that the archipelago has to offer, I can show you. A more authentic experience in the finish nature is hard to come by :) You can find out more info about me from my professional Instagram/Facebook page #HELSINKIBOATRIDES
