FROM $1,349 PER PERSON | 4 DAYS | $337 PER DAY

Contemporary and classic, Helsinki is all at once a study in opposites. Some of the Europe’s finest art nouveau buildings dazzle the eye, but contemporary art museums beckon. Once part of Sweden, then Russia, Finland’s capital now has an identity all its own and you’ll discover it on an enriching three-night extension here to immerse yourself in the islands, peninsulas, and hidden coves that have collectively earned Helsinki the title of the “White City of the North.”

Your Price Includes:
  • 3 nights at the Deluxe Hotel Haven (or similar)
  • 5 meals: 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner
  • Panoramic city tour of Helsinki
  • Train transportation between Russia and Helsinki
  • The service of a City Host and regional experts, transfers, and baggage handling (except in customs)
  • Services of the Vantage Worldwide Concierge, to plan celebrations, activities, or provide regional expertise. Log in to My Portfolio and submit a request, or send an email any time up to two weeks prior to your departure at Concierge@vantagetravel.com.
