OverviewHide
Venture across the Finnish countryside to the medieval village of Porvoo. This coastal town was an important center of trade during The Middle Ages, and, today, her cobblestone streets provide a stunning glimpse into the past. Follow a local guide on a stroll that winds past idyllic homes and rustic facades that now host quaint shops and cozy eateries. Learn about the 800-year history of Porvoo, filled with tales of undaunted settlers, marauding pirates and booming trade years. Take a postcard-perfect photo of Old Town and its telltale red storehouses from atop the Old Bridge, and visit a local café for a slice of "Runeberg Cake", named after Finland's greatest poet. Afterwards, enjoy some free time to unwind by the shores of the Porvoo River before returning to Helsinki for a panoramic sightseeing drive. Witness majestic Uspenski Cathedral, the colorful market, and other landmarks before arriving back at the ship.
