Porvoo by Bike

Porvoo is an idyllic little town with lots of history and stylish wooden architecture by the river. It’s a popular day trip destination from Helsinki.

The distance between Helsinki and Porvoo is 50 kilometers. On the way it is wonderful to see how Helsinki a bit by bit changes into countryside landscape of pastures full of horses and cows. You will also see how the water and forest take places next to each other as we follow the Baltic Sea coastline all way long. On top of all this, your return trip will be an unforgettable archipelago cruise where you can enjoy and see all this conveniently onboard from the sea!

In Porvoo you will enjoy a lunch in the old wooden town and after the guided walk you can wander on your own and for example do shopping at some of the artisan shops. Or maybe you prefer sitting down just to enjoy the beautiful river view. It’s no wonder that the old town Porvoo experience has been many times described as “UNESCO worth”. 🙂
