Cruise in the archipelago of Helsinki and Conference Dinner

There will be a cruise boat to take you to the Conference Dinner and to show you the beautiful scenery of the archipelago of Helsinki as well as the best view of Helsinki which opens from onboard a boat. It will be an experience to remember.

The Cruise boat will leave from the Market Square located in the South Harbour on June 9 at 18.30.

The Conference dinner will be served in Restaurant Saaristo on the Klippan island. Restaurant Saaristo’s historical milieu as well as central and beautiful location by the sea offers a unique setting for the Dinner. At Saaristo history breaths life on all surroundings. You can admire the Empire-Helsinki skyline in the north, the ingenious walls and bastions of the Suomenlinna fortress in the south and the crafty and romantic Art Nouveau style wood cuts in the historical dining room. Saaristo’s white Art Nouveau style villa, built in 1898, is one of Helsinki’s most imposing and traditional restaurants.

The dinner will end around 23.00 hours and you will be taken back to the mainland, to Olympia terminal in South harbour by a connection boat. The boat trip will take a couple of minutes and the boat can accommodate about 40 persons at a time. The boat will travel non-stop.
