We are enjoying the most we can of the summer here in Finland and doing many bike trips! By the way, have you seen our other trips? There are many legal tips and in today’s, you will know a little more about the city of Porvoo (or Borgå in Swedish)!
I did a very nice article for the Brazilian platform I write monthly with many other tips from when we went during winter. Porvoo is a charming and very tourist city! During winter, it’s a totally different city and when summer comes, it transforms! It’s well worth spending a weekend there and enjoy everything the city offers. Moreover, the best thing is that it’s near to Helsinki!
There are a few transportation options to go. During summer, there are several boat trips that leave from Helsinki to Porvoo! They are tours that go and come back on the same day and it is beautiful to see the route by the sea and by the river.
Another option is to drive, as it’s a very good road and it takes around an hour! Going by bus is also very easy and they all run from the Kamppi terminal in Helsinki!
Now, if you are adventurous like us, cycling is a fantastic experience! The ride is very smooth and the road is beautiful!! We chose to go by bike and return by bus to enjoy the day. It was the best choice we made as we were very tired at the end. The driver didn’t charge us anything extra for the bikes, but they say they may charge a small fee to take them. I think it may depend on the schedule.
We vlogged it all to share our trip with you!
Hit play and hope you enjoy it!
