Explore Helsinki by Jopo, the famous Finnish bike, designed as practical transportation for a wide range of people. Known as "everyone's bicycle", Jopos were once found in almost every Finnish home. Your guide will provide a safety briefing before you head into the Finnish Capital, a wonderful city to explore by bike because of the relatively flat terrain. Ride along paths by city parks, waterfronts and residential and commercial areas, and experience the city from a unique perspective.

View Helsinki's main city beach, Hietaranta, and continue along the waterfront to Sibelius Park to see the monument to Finland's world famous composer. Pass through the residential district of Toolo to the shores of Toolo Bay. Here enjoy a great view of the city as well as the new Opera House and decorative wooden villas dating from the 19th century. You will also see in the distance Finlandia Hall, the National Museum and the Parliament as you continue to the eastern side of the city. Stop for photos at the eastern Harbour and capture the beauty of Katajanokka Island, summer home to the Finnish Icebreaker fleet and location of the Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral, with its 13 golden onion domes. At Market Square, walk with your bike and safely enjoy the colorful sights and sounds of one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. As you head away from the Old City Harbour, take a moment to admire the skyline which prominently features the Lutheran Cathedral, the City Hall and the Presidential Palace.
