A Picnic tour to Suomenlinna


Your guides are authorized travel guides in Helsinki and Suomenlinna, and we provide history-based walking tours in the fortress. We will be visiting places, 
which a normal tourist never finds his way to. Our tour begins at the harbor of Helsinki Market Square and the distance to walk in the fortress will be approximately 4 kilometers. 
During the tour we visit the small shop of the fortress, to fetch something to eat and head to the walls and and the cliffs of the sea shore.

We will have stories of the fortress starting from the time of Finland being part of Sweden, through the 110 years time being part of Russia until the time of independence, trying to connect the history of the site to the world history.

We will also visit the local museum, and spend some time at the local movie theater, that shows a historical information movie. Our tour lasts approximately 5-6 hours including the ferry trip. This kind of ready-made pick-nick day tour is not available through Suomenlinna sales office. The leaders of the tour are professional guides of Helsinki, Suomenlinna and local culture.
