HELSINKI ARCHIPELAGO

helsinki’s archipelago with it’s maritime vibe is close to yoo-hoo! tours heart

HELSINKI IS SITUATED BY THE COAST OF THE BALTIC SEA AND OUR ARCHIPELAGO HAS MORE THAN 300 ISLANDS. SOME OF THEM ARE VERY POPULAR OUTDOOR AND RECREATIONAL AREAS OF THE CITY AMONG LOCALS. WE OFFER TOURS TO A VARIETY OF ISLANDS INCLUDING GUIDED TOURS WITH AN AUTHORIZED GUIDE TO SUOMENLINNA SEA FORTRESS.

Our dedication to the sensitive and specific environment of the Baltic Sea goes deeper than organizing the tours. The sea environment has been part of Juho’s life for years, first as crew member on the cruise ferries on the Baltic Sea and later on by working onboard the international cruise liners. Nowadays boating along the coast of Helsinki is a summertime hobby. 

To keep the Baltic Sea environment available also for future generations, Yoo-hoo! Tours  makes a donation from each tour to the John Nurminen Foundation and their important work in preserving the Baltic Sea and its fragile ecosystem.

Different islands for different tours 

Suomenlinna Sea Fortress with its impressive, almost 300 years old history. This Unesco world heritage site is one the best kept bastion style island fortresses worldwide. The exciting stories and hidden places you will see on our tour will give you a feeling of lifestyle long ago, but you will also have a chance to see the modern Suomenlinna with its restaurants, cafes and museums. 

Vallisaari and Kuninkaansaari former military islands have been open for public only for few years. They both have a lush nature and amazing sea views which are of course combined with historical fortifications and buildings which tell a story of thousands of soldiers and other people. There are few cafes with restrooms on the island. On these mysterious islands the time seems to stand still. 

Lonna island is a small and compact island with many stories. It is known from its red brick buildings which have served as a mine station earlier. On this island we will guide a short 45 minutes walking tour during which you will hear about the mine construction history and see for example the secret control room which operated to keep the Baltic Sea safe to the sea fare. After the tour you can stay on the island and enjoy a tasty meal or cold drink there or even see the most beautiful sunset of Helsinki.

Vasikkasaari is the most rural of Helsinki recreational islands. We will organize you a private boat the get there so it is easy to connect this island with Island Hopping tour. On the island we will guide you around this blooming place and let you admire the sea views to the city. After the tour including the history of the island we can arrange a nice picnic or even a barbeque.

Island hopping or even a private boat? 

Most of the islands in Helsinki are easily reached by our public transportation or island ferries departing from the Market Square. The islands also are located quite close to each others, so we can easily arrange you an Island Hopping tour to show you more than one island. This kind of a tour takes about half day, and we can together plan which islands you wish to see and where the lunch or a snack break is going to be. This is really a recommended way to see the archipelago as the islands are all different by they nature and history. This tour can be done with a public ferries or by with a private boat from our locals partners. 

To make your experience even more special, why not book a private boat for your tour? Our partners have different boats available, and you can use them for island hopping, maritime sightseeing or just leisure boating with a captain and our guide.
