About this wheelchair accessible highlights of Helsinki tour

Discover the magical city of Helsinki during this wheelchair accessible private tour. Your guide will wait for you upon disembarking your cruise ship, and you find him by the sign he is holding with your name on it. Together with your driver, your local guide will show you all the main highlights with an adapted vehicle while sharing detail and lovely inside stories about the city and its sights. The order of the visits may differ, depending local traffic and day of the week.

The Cathedral of Helsinki

One of the main sites you see this day is the beautiful Cathedral of Helsinki (outside visit). This impressive white building was built as a tribute to the Grand Duke of Finland in 1852 and is one of the most important landmarks in the city. Next you drive over the Esplanadi boulevard, which is one of Helsinki’s main streets that connects the center with the harbor. Along the way, you see lots of green, friendly local bars, and charming restaurants. You also see the remarkable building where the Finnish parliament is located.

There are several stops throughout this tour where you can stroll/roll around, snap some holiday pictures, have a coffee and go to the bathroom. Would you like to see particular sights or add a stop to your tour? Talk to your guide, and he will do his best accommodate accordingly.

The Market and Senate square

During your wheelchair accessible Helsinki tour you also visit the local outdoor market area at the Old Port and the Senate Square in the historical center. The market is filled with stalls where you can buy the ultimate souvenir. Choose from the hats and gloves, to the various gifts and ask the vendors to try some of the traditional Finnish food.

The Senate Square is where architecture and culture collide in a beautifully designed square, with the imposing Helsinki Cathedral.

Sibelius Monument and the Temppeliaukio Church

The last two sights you see (outside visits) on today’s tour are Sibelius Monument at the Park and the Temppeliaukio Church in the rock. The Sibelius monument is an abstract display of sounds, made by a cluster of organ pipes. Finnish sculptor Eila Hiltunen designed it in 1967 as an ode to Sibelius’ music.

And last but not least, be amazed by the Temppeliaukio Church. A true architectural masterpiece created by the two Suomalainen brothers, entirely carved from bedrock in the city center.

After a day of making memories in Helsinki, your guide brings you back to the cruise port nnd you can continue your holiday.
