Accompanied by a local guide, you're about to discover the Helsinki that foodies cherish.
Head to the lively food market hall, housed in an historic brick building dating from 1888 and recently restored. Your guide offers a practical introduction to Finnish food by guiding you through the market's alleyways and showing you many, many different products originating from both Scandinavia and Lapland. These are the two major cultures that contribute to the cuisine of Finland as we know it today. Cured moose meat, reindeer sausage, dried fish, and savory Lapland cheeses are sold here at the market, and you'll stop at some of your guide's favorite stalls to sample Finnish treasures such as smoked fish and Finnish pastries. Enjoy some free time at the Market Hall to sample and purchase whatever takes your fancy.
Outside, in the open-air market square, the stalls overflow with seasonal berries and vegetables, so you'll be invited to taste some samples of whatever is growing this week. Enjoy some free time afterwards for shopping here.
A photo stop at Senate Square and a brief panoramic drive through the city complete your picture of Helsinki before you return to the ship.
