This morning your guide will meet you for a city overview tour. Your guide will show you Senate Square which was established when Helsinki became the capitol of Finland in 1812. The square represents the political, religious and scientific aspects of the city as it is flanked by the Lutheran church, the Government palace and the University of Helsinki.
You will also see the amazing underground stone church Tempelliaukkio. Built in 1969, the 80 foot ceiling is covered with copper stripping which creates fantastic acoustics.
Continue onto the Sibelius Monument built in memory of Finland’s national composer Jean Sibelius. The monument is constructed of hundreds of hollow steel pipes. The pipes are united in a wave like pattern to represent the waves of music.
Take a moment to step inside the Chapel of Silence. Located outside the entrance to a shopping center, one of the busy spots in the city, the small chapel embraces its visitors with its cocooned curved wooden walls and peaceful interior.
Later, your driver will meet you in your hotel lobby for your transfer to the airport. Cost of flight not included. Upon arrival into Ivalo, you will be greeted outside of baggage claim and transfer to Kaksauttanen. Please note this transfer is a group transfer.
