Your itinerary

Day 1

Fly direct to Tallinn. On arrival join the private transfer to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Day 2

Tallinn: Free time in Tallinn. A natural starting point on any Tallinn itinerary, the Lower Town is perhaps what you would consider to be the true medieval heart of Tallinn, a heady mix of Gothic architecture and cobbled streets.

Day 3

Tallinn: If you feel ready to move out from exploring the Old Town, The Kadriorg area is good to explore. Home to the Estonian President’s residence, museums and many embassies, you can also see the baroque Kadriorg Palace built by Peter the Great. Now home to the Art Museum, the vast Park that surrounds it is a great place for a leisurely stroll around the flowers, lake and monuments and to see the Japanese Garden.

Day 4

Join the transfer to the Port for the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki. On arrival join the transfer to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Day 5

Helsinki: The Market Square is Helsinki's most international and famous market. The booths here sell traditional market foods and treats, as well as handicrafts and souvenirs.

Day 6

Helsinki: With works dating from 19th century through to the modern age, The Ateneum is Finland’s best-known art museum and the home of Finnish art. Definitely well worth a visit. You also won't want to miss the beautiful Helsinki Cathedral. The Cathedral is an Evangelic Lutheran church, and for many it is the symbol of Helsinki. Completed in 1852, the church was designed by architect Carl Ludwig Engel in the 19th century as part of the Empire-style-downtown Helsinki area.

Day 7

Join the transfer to Helsinki airport for the return flight to the UK.
