PRETOUR – Beautiful and magical Porvoo – Easy day trip from Helsinki CANCELLED!

Old Porvoo is one of Finland’s most idyllic districts. The cobbled streets are lined with old, doll-house-like houses and on top of the hill a white stone church looks over the river valley. Wonderful in the summer. Only one hour drive east of Helsinki. Old Porvoo treats all the visitors’ senses with its beautiful wooden buildings, historical sights, cozy shops, top notch restaurants and delightful cafés. Porvoo is great for a photoshoot and shopping daytrip as well as for a longer getaway in the Finnish nature. It's very easy to get into the Porvoo mode and fall in love with the place.
