We were ready for more quiet so we opted for the country visit. It was very enjoyable. Low key but very nice family visit (loved the animals). We had time to visit some in the city after that, and some time on our own, but my husband wasn't feeling well so we went back to the ship. Would love to have seen more of Helsiniki itself. All in all it was a good day. Read Less

Country drive and home visit.
Country drive and home visit. Nice outing and the host of the home visit was very personable - just not much to do. Wish they had let us use the sauna's on the property for a real Finnish experience.
