2 travellers
Happy Helsinki Walking Tour is the funniest way to learn about Helsinki and its history. On your private three hour guided walk you will hear anecdotes of Finland and Finnish culture and see the top attractions of Helsinki such as 
 Esplanadi, Helsinki Cathedral, the Chapel of Silence, Amos Rex art museum, Senate Square, Market Square, Allas Seapool and many others!
  • View Helsinki’s highlights on a small-group walking tour
  • Delve deeper into the city’s past and present, and get local tips from a guide
  • See a mix of must-see highlights and lesser-known hidden gems
  • Great overview for first-time visitors or those short on time
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure option and meet your guide in central Helsinki. Then, set off to view the elegant city’s sights.
You’ll start with the landmarks of Senate Square, listening as your guide sheds light on Helsinki’s past, tells stories of modern-day city life, and shares insider tips on places to go, shop, and eat.
View the green-and-gold-domed Russian Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral and take in the contemporary architecture of the Kiasma Modern Art Museum. Then pass the Kamppi Center and admire the Chapel of Silence—a rounded timber sanctuary designed for quiet contemplation.
Next you’ll visit a market for refreshments (own expense) and continue to the Temppeliaukio Church, better known as the Rock Church. Explore inside (own expense) the unique structure, quarried from natural rock in the 1960s, before your tour finishes.
