The Market Square is a daily stop for locals looking for the freshest fish, fruits, vegetables and flowers, with an ever-changing assortment reflective of the seasons. See the
Finnish National Gallery, National Theater, modern National Opera house and Kiasma, the Museum of Modern Art representing Helsinki's cultural life. World famous Finlandia Hall, designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto overlooks Töölö Bay and the Sibelius monument honors the well known Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.
After your Helsinki Highlights tour, and just a short 20 minute drive from the city, you'll be whisked away to a true Winter Wonderland. Upon arrival you will be supplied with thermal clothing, everything you'll need to stay warm and toasty...overalls, socks and boots. Open the door and find yourself transported to "instant winter". All the joys of snow without the shoveling! No matter the weather outside, in here it's always 41 degrees, no wind chill, no snow storms, no hassles, just fun! Explore the igloos of the snow hotel, have a seat at the bar, covered with reindeer hides to keep down the chill, throw back an ice-cold shot from an ice glass, delight in the colorful, artistically lit snow and ice decorations. Enjoy tobogganing, sledding and tandem skiing (a true test of cooperation with your fellow-skier) and meet friendly, tail-wagging huskies, waiting to take you for a ride.
After this unique experience, as your driver returns you to the cruise pier, you will be remembering the wonderful day you just spent in Helsinki.
