Start your tour by meeting your private guide in central Helsinki and hopping aboard the ferry for the ride to Suomenlinna Sea Fortress (known as Sveaborg in Swedish).

Founded in 1748, Suomenlinna is located on six islands outside Helsinki’s city center: Kustaanmiekka, Susisaari, Iso-Mustasaari, Pikku-Mustasaari, Länsi-Mustasaari, and Långören. When you arrive at the fortress, your guide leads you on a tour of the most important sights, such as the Castle Courtyard, Piper's Park, and the Dry Dock, which was once among the largest in the world. As you walk, learn about the eventful history of the island and what life is like there today.
