This tour ticks all the boxes when it comes to seeing the highlights of Finland’s capital. The best part is that you can create your own itinerary for the day – just hop off when you see something you fancy. And when you’re done, head back to the bus stop to move on to somewhere new. You can do this as many times as you like, whether you want to see one or 15 of the sights along this route. Stop at Senate Square, and you can fill your camera with shots of Neoclassical buildings and the impressive Helsinki Cathedral. You’ll have the chance to cast an eye over the Sibelius Monument – a huge metal structure that looks like a collection of organ pipes. It was built in a pretty park in memory of famous Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, back in the 1960s. You’ll also pass the iconic Rock Church, a number of museums, and the Olympic Stadium. And you can connect to the free Wi-Fi onboard if you need a little help deciding where to explore.
