Be introduced to a traditional Finnish activity and to Finland's capital, Helsinki. Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing recreational fitness sports in the world. Developed in Finland by off-season Cross Country Skiers, Nordic Walking makes use of specially designed walking poles which engage the upper body, providing a total body workout.

Meet your guide at the ship and receive your gear along with a demonstration of the simple techniques involved in Nordic Walking. With small groups of maximum 15 other guests the guide can give his full attention to all participants during the tour. After brief warm-up exercises, begin your approximately 5 mile relaxed walk (depending on the group's fitness) into the center of Helsinki passing along dedicated walking paths, past city parks, waterfront districts, residential and commercial areas.

Follow your guide beyond the industrial pier and the shipyard, past a marina and a residential area before picking up the pace along the scenic waterfront area. You will walk through Kaivopuisto Park and see exclusive waterfront properties and embassies located in the area. From a distance you can even see the Suomenlinna Island Fortification. Next you will arrive to the Market Square and enjoy the colorful sights and sounds of one the most popular tourist attractions of the city. Continue your walk to the Senate Square with the Lutheran Cathedral making your way to a green park area where many of the citys popular summer concerts are organized. Along your way you will see the Parliament and the Contemporary Art Museum, Kiasma, as you wind down your activity and enter the downtown area finally coming to the end of your walk.  Conclude at the downtown Shuttle Bus stop and return directly to the ship, or you may choose to remain and independently enjoy more of the city sights at your own pace. Your guide will collect your Nordic Walking Poles should you decide to remain in the city.
