    • Where and when does the tour end?

      The tour ends upon your arrival to Helsinki on the morning of Day 7, at around 8 - 9pm. Please be aware that the return time is dependant upon external factors such as traffic and weather conditions, therefore we recommend scheduling your flights from Helsinki only after 1pm.

      A list of optional excursions will be released with your trip documents once you have a confirmed booking, which you can pre-book up until 7 days before your departure.
