Helsinki, Finland (Pre-Trip)

FROM $1,599 PER PERSON | 4 DAYS | $399 PER DAY

Contemporary and classic, Helsinki is all at once a study in opposites. Some of 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' accommodations at the Deluxe Hotel Haven (or similar)
  • 5 meals: 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner
  • Panoramic city tour of Helsinki
  • Train transportation: Travel in first-class comfort and style aboard the Allegro Train between St. Petersburg and Helsinki
  • All transfers and baggage handling (where permitted)
  • Service of a City Host and regional expert
  • Tipping for drivers and local guides (excluding City Host)
  • 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.
