This very special tour begins from the pier with a panoramic tour of Helsinki, passing some of the most interesting sights in the capital, such as Mannerheim Street, the Parliament House, The National Museum, the Olympic Stadium and the New Opera House. You'll then leave Helsinki behind and travel to the beautiful Haikko Manor and Sauna.

The history of Haikko Manor dates back to 1362 when it was owned by a Dominican Monastery of Vyborg (Russia). Its fascinating past has not surprisingly, been linked with royal and imperial splendor. During the Russian rule at the turn of the century, several members of the Russian imperial family would visit Haikko during the summers. Purchased by the Vuoristo family in 1965, Haikko was converted into a hotel in 1966. Today, it consists of three major areas: the Manor, the Spa and the Congress Center.

During your time at Haikko Manor, you'll have a wonderful opportunity to experience the uniqueness of the Finnish national sport of Nordic walking. Conducted within the surrounding environs of the beautiful park and accompanied by an instructor, you may choose an easy Nordic walk or one with more strenuous activity, such as walking a hill. After your exhilarating walk, you can relax in the traditional cottage sauna by the sea, or stroll around the lovely grounds. Here, enjoy some light refreshments in the cottage.

Upon your return to Helsinki you will make a short visit to the unique Rock Church, a thrilling work of modern architecture in Helsinki. Completed in 1969, it is built entirely underground and has a ceiling made of copper wire. There will be a 15 minute walk each way to the Rock Church from the coach parking lot. We will then make a photo stop at the Senate Square where you can remain shopping and return to the ship under your own arrangements if you wish to stay in downtown Helsinki .

Following your visit, you will then return back to the ship.

Please note: This tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those with mobility concerns. The Nordic walking portion of the tour covers approximately 1 mile and the Nordic hill climb is approximately 500 feet. Those guests who wish to use the sauna should bring along a swimsuit. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The Rock Church may be closed during religious services, therefore visit inside the church is not guaranteed. Due to new traffic restrictions, guests will have a 10 minutes walk each way to reach the Rock Church.
