Explore Porvoo with a Local!

Porvoo is the second oldest city in Finland, just one hour away from Helsinki. The city of 50,000 locals attracts visitors all year round, especially with its charming wooden old town and tasty chocolate! Would you like to experience Porvoo with one of our Locals?

During your Day With A Local you will walk through the cobbled streets of Porvoo’s old town, seeing and experiencing the details that lie within. You could also visit the idyllic natural areas across the river and enjoy views of the city from afar. But most importantly, you will learn about the city from a Local, who will tell you about daily life in one of Finland’s most picturesque cities!
