Approximately 4 Hours
A short walk from the ship brings you to Market Square, where a RIB boat awaits you. Gear and listen to a safety briefing; then, you'll cast off and cruise through the most beautiful spots of the Helsinki's western archipelago. You'll notice a lot of summer cabins, boaters and possibly wildlife en route.
Upon arrival at your island destination, your hosts welcome you to their private summer cottage. Catch a glimpse of daily life in the archipelago, discover the best fishing places, and find out how to prepare a perch. Assist your hosts as they heat up their authentic Finnish sauna -- ready for you to experience this Finnish rite of passage. You'll have a breathtaking view -- from the sauna's panoramic window, you can see all the way to Helsinki's city center (weather permitting). Cool down afterwards with a dip in the sea, just like the locals do.
Enjoy a homemade archipelago lunch as you sit on the warm cliffs and gaze out to sea.
Return to the RIB for a scenic ride back to the city.
Please note: Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel in a small backpack. Large items cannot be carried on the RIB. Minimum age is 10 years. Participants must be agile enough to (dis)embark the RIB boat without assistance. Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer. Wear comfortable walking shoes. There is no restroom on the boat. The restroom on the island is a basic outhouse-style restroom with no running water.
