Spouse Guest Day Tours

Our spouse guest program is all things Finland!

DAY 1: Enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views of the Nuuksio National Park with an enjoyable nature walk, all while picking your own mushrooms for a delicious lunch at the Green Window. Continue exploring Nuuksio with opening activities of your choice, such as canoeing across the lake, enjoying the smoke sauna, or even relaxing in the hot tub.

DAY 2: Take a walk in the life of a Fin! Start your day with a visit to the Ateneum Art Museum where you will see local and international classics. A short trip to the center of Helsinki, for a charming lunch at Restaurant Lasipalatsi, with a 1930s feel and classic Finnish dishes. Once finished, take a trip to Temppeliaukio Church, designed in 1969 under the natural bedrock which is why it is also known as The Rock Church. End the day with shopping down Esplanadi Park where we will tour the Marimekko shop, Market Square, and the Helsinki Cathedral.
