Helsinki is the Finnish largest port city, capital, and the country’s economic and cultural center. Founded in 1550, it became the capital after Finland became independent in 1917. The forest land area accounts for a large proportion of the living area, the environment is beautiful, and the population density is very low. The city’s buildings are mostly built with light-colored granite, and it is known as the “Northern White City”. Our journey will start from here, take a tour of the Nordic largest cathedral with its snow-white exterior walls and green roofs, visit the largest Orthodox church in Northern Europe, and experience the Nordic style at the seaside market.

• In the evening, you could take the Northern Lights train to Rovaniemi, the hometown of Santa Claus (2 people/comfortable soft-sleeper box, bathing).
