Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $370.79 AUD / Adult
Meet some of Finland's most captivating personalities on a narrated tour that takes you beyond bustling Helsinki. Enjoy a one-hour drive through the countryside to the medieval town of Porvoo. Stroll along cobbled streets lined with colorful timber buildings, and witness the historic Porvoo Cathedral. Continue along the Porvoo River, pausing at the Old Bridge for spectacular views overlooking Old Town, before arriving at Loviisa - an idyllic town where Jean Sibelius spent his childhood summers. Visit King's Pond Villa for a warm welcome by its residents, Mr. Pulkkinen and Mrs. Isaeva. They'll guide you on a tour of the home, built between 1750 and 1850, and host a light lunch served indoors or amid the fragrant rose garden. Afterwards, a short drive leads to what is still the current home of Count Johan Creutz and his family. Malmgard Manor has been in the Creutz family since the early 1600s, yet the Count has modernized the property by creating an organic farm and shop, and even an eco-brewery.
