Here at Scandi Travel, we are very excited to offer a new private tour like no other: explore Helsinki by Bike!
Our Helsinki by Bike tour is a fun way to get outside, enjoy fresh and crisp air, and explore Helsinki in an easygoing yet active way. You will be guided and introduced to all of this very cosmopolitan city’s major attractions, and in no time at all you will feel like a local!
Your private guide will meet you anywhere in central Helsinki you choose. You can either bring your own bike, or you will be provided (all-inclusive in the tour price) with a comfortable, two-speed cruiser bicycle. These new Poni bikes are specifically designed for sightseeing, and incorporate both back pedal brakes as well as a hand-brake, so whatever style of riding you feel most comfortable with is accommodated. There is even a convenient basket for your bag and camera!
The tour lasts between three and four hours, depending on both your preference and your guide’s availability.
Bicycling is a beautiful way to see Finland and especially to explore Helsinki, with almost one thousand kilometres of bicycle lanes in the city alone. With plenty of parks and green spaces, there is so much to explore, and even the main street Mannerheimintie is safe for riding. Helsinki is a relatively flat and easy place to ride, with no big arduous hills to tackle!
