Helsinki: Sailing Activity Holiday
Finland is known for its lakes, but Helsinki is surely the nation’s premier sailing destination. Surrounded on three sides by water and with an archipelago of islands providing a tempting playground for those on a sailing holiday, Helsinki is a perfect choice for sailors.
Companies such as Finlandia Sailing offer crewed charters, bare boat rentals and a sailing school, making the most of the waters in and around Helsinki. Their prices vary depending on the time of year you wish to sail, the type of boat and whether or not it is crewed, but start from around 850 euros for a week in low season.
If you’re feeling even more adventurous, then why not contact The Helsinki Sailing Ships Office. This company arranges sailing tours around Helsinki’s waters on old-time sailing ships which last from a couple of hours to a few days. This costs from 1000 euros upwards depending on the ship you choose, how long you wish to sail for and whether or not you would like meals provided. It’s certainly an option that will attract sailors holidaying in Helsinki who are in search of something beyond even the beautiful views of the archipelago.
