This enchanting eight day adventure commences with three nights in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, with a guided tour of this coastal melting pot of Scandinavian and Russian influences, including a visit to the Suomenlinna Fortress, an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site straddled across six of Helsinki’s islands.
