This is a relaxing tour in canals around Helsinki where you can relax and listen to the audio guidance. It takes about 90 minutes and you can see different islands from the boat

A lovely 1.5 hour boat tour around the delightful islands of Helsinki. We were visiting from a cruise ship and hadn’t booked a tour. This very last minute addition worked well for us and returned us to a fantastic marketplace full of local treasures. It...More

The Canal Route is the only tour that can go through the narrow Degero Canal. You can see how people live by the water in their beautiful houses and saunas, so pretty. Some islands have public beaches so many people were swimming during the heatwave....More

Took the boat from the Market Square and I have to admit that the almost 2 hour boat ride was great with amazing views around the water bodies of Helsinki. However, it did turn boring sometimes. The information/commentary is in different languages and is played...More

I 1.5 hours on the boat with very little to see. It’s included in the Helsinki Card because Stromma owns a lot of the tourist industry. Don’t waste your time.

Approx one and one half hours tour the island around Helsinki. They had head sets for your to listen to the history of some of the places. Nice café downstairs. We really enjoyed the trip.

This was a lovely half hours worth of tour squeezed into a two hour trip. Boring and uncomfortable. The middle of the boat is on a raised platform to see both sides, so the people on each side stand blocking the view.

Helsinki has a very interesting history, particularly from the Viking era. The island is surrounded by many, and hard to navigate around if you don't know your way around. Loved the panoramic view and the little inlets here and there opening up to hidden beaches....More

Although the temperature was in the mid twenties onshore these boat trips get a bit cooler once you are out at sea. The company provide some blankets for passengers but not enough for every person. Take a long sleeve top just in case. The trip...More
