This is very much a relaxed sightseeing tour as this will be another day spent in the city, seeing and being seen. Helsinki is very well worth a visit – we will be meeting with people and cyclists, exploring the beautiful capital of Finland, and relaxing downtown.
The ride into the city center is about 32 km, quite a few turns as we enter the city via side roads. Be prepared for a lot of cobble stone riding through Helsinki.
In the early evening, at 19:30 (departure time), we will take the ferry boat to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. You will need to pack up in the morning and carry your belongings with you during the day as we will not return to the campsite at Espoo.
Arrival time at Tallin will be 21:30, just enough time for us to make camp before dark. Our campground at Tallinn is located fairly close to the ferry terminal, about 3 km to the East.
