This journey will show you all the highlights Southern Finland has to offer like picturesque coastal cities, the beauty of the Finnish archipelago and a visit to the fascinating Åland Islands consisting of more than 6700 islands. First of all you start your journey with an interesting guided tour of Helsinki where you will be introduced to the many gems that Helsinki has to offer. Porvoo is another must-see with a town plan dating from the Middle Ages, low houses, picturesque yards and narrow streets. Following this you are heading west alongside the South coast of the Baltic Sea to visit two of the most beautiful coastal cities and continue to Turku, the oldest town of Finland and former capital. For dinner we recommend a very unique place just outside of Turku where you will enjoy a traditionally meal at an open fireplace in the tranquillity of a Finnish forest next to the Baltic Sea. The next destination will be Naantali, one of the most picturesque cities of Finland. Famous sights include a former monastery, the Old Town with narrow streets and a unique charm and the summer residence of the Finnish President. Then you will take the ferry to the lovely Åland Islands between Finland and Sweden where the landscape is characterized by so-called roches moutonnées or sheepbacks and countless archipelago lined coasts dating from the last Ice Age. Just enjoy the beautiful scenery and the breathtaking view from the upper deck before you reach the Åland Islands. During an exploratory island tour on this natural paradise you will see some of the most well-known sights such as the castle of Kastelholm, the Bormarsund fortress, the fisher village of Käringsund in Eckerö and Kobba Klintar just to mention a few highlights. Not to be missed is a beach walk and then just enjoy the evening on this fascinating island. The next day you still have some time to discover more of the wonderful Åland Islands before you take the ferry back to Finland.
