5 Reasons Why You Should Join a Free Walking Tour in Helsinki

Are you looking forward to being able to travel once the lockdown has lifted and considering Helsinki as a holiday destination? Then look no further than our Free Walking Tour of Helsinki. This 2-hour local experience will provide you with some great tips on how to enjoy Helsinki as a local. Besides that, there are plenty of other reasons to join a Free Walking Tour with Red Umbrella Tours.

  1. No planning required

Joining a free tour is easy – fill in the form on our website and turn up at the agreed time at the Havis Amanda statue, where a friendly tour guide with a red umbrella awaits. There is no need to plan your day or even your stay ahead as our tour guides will provide you with valuable tips on how to make the most of your time depending on your personal interests. Being Helsinki locals, Red Umbrella guides have lived in the city long enough to tell you the most fascinating stories, and share the best places to visit for a memorable stay in Helsinki.

  1. It is the best way to get to know Helsinki


Is there a better way of starting your journey than being greeted by a friendly local? Our tour guides are exactly that person that will make you fall in love with Helsinki. During the tour, they will not only take you to the most famous places in Helsinki downtown, but will also show you some local curiosities that you would have probably missed when exploring the city on your own. Local knowledge is definitely something that you can’t get from a travel guide – so make sure to join our Free Helsinki Walking Tour.

  1. Meet like-minded travellers and make friends

Joining a Free Tour is like joining an exclusive club where everyone loves travelling and also appreciates fun & informative tours. You can use our free walking tours as an opportunity to meet new people and possibly even become travel companions in the future. Take the time to speak to one another and exchange contact details!

  1. It is eco-friendly!

Helsinki is a very green city and our residents do care about the environment a lot. Taking a leisurely walk through town, is by far the best way to see the city - and this is exactly how the majority of Helsinkians get around. Even if the weather is a little rainy or even snowy, grab your waterproof coat, a good pair of trainers, an umbrella and a good spirit - and experience first-hand what living with SISU means.


  1. You choose the price – no pressure

Free walking tours are excellent for any budget as they are completely free to join. If you think that our Red Umbrella tour guides helped you to learn something new about Helsinki and Finland or possibly even made your day – then leave a donation to the guide at the end of the tour to show your gratitude. As our tour guides haven’t been able to work for quite some time now due to coronavirus restrictions, they will really appreciate any donations you might be willing to make when the tours resume. If this sounds like a perfect tour arrangement for you, then we are happy to see you on our Red Umbrella Free Walking Tour soon!
