Description

A colorful and charming city with narrow cobbled streets, wooden houses, and a riverfront setting—Porvoo's Old Town is must-see. Stroll along the waterways, see clusters of delightful homes, and learn about the local residents as this guided tour reveals the secrets of Finland's second-oldest town.

Leave the hustle and bustle of the capital behind and step back in time with a visit to Porvoo—a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just a 45 minute drive from Helsinki, Porvoo is a popular place to visit for locals and tourists alike. Founded in 1346 and one of the only 6 medieval towns in the country, Porvoo showcases the history, heritage, and character of Finland.

Let your guide lead the way as you meander through the maze of cobbled streets of the Old Town. Passing by distinctive wooden houses, colorful cafés, and enchanting boutique stores that line the riverfront, you gain insight into the history of this village. Learn how the town suffered many fires but determined residents always rebuilt their houses on the same foundations—preserving its traditional allure.

Enjoy some free time to explore as you wish. Take a leisurely walk along the riverbank, shop for souvenirs at local craft shops, and absorb the tranquil and timeless atmosphere before returning to your Helsinki hotel.

The tour was interesring. We had a guided walk tour in a small number of people and it was nice to be able to communicate with the tour guide and other tourists. Good tour for those who are OK to use English.
