Another port where paid excursions are unnecessary. Public transportation (tram station right at West Harbour port) is best option. Easy to get to Temppeliaukio Church (only need 20 minutes to see it). Market Square is neat with a lot of interesting foods to try. The muikku (tiny whole fried herring with a garlic sauce) were awesome. There are other great seafood, reindeer, and moose options to try also. This is a great place for souvenir hunting. Biggest disappointment was simply there were not a lot of sights right in the city to see, although you could go further out for a couple of other activities, but may limit time in city.

No excursion, Hopon Hopoff gave an impression of the city. Good to have some time free.

Local shuttle- about a twenty minute journey into town. Cathedral in the cave was fantastic.

Nice city, easy to get to from cruise port. Dissappointed with NCL service desk though. We asked how to get to the centre and were told the cheapest way was to use the NCL drop off and return service for $40. I could see the tram from my balcony and it was only a 5 minute walk to the stop. The trams run every 10 minutes and cost €2 each way.

Took the tram into downtown but there wasn't anything exciting. The church built into the rock was different.

Again - the Hop on Hop off busses do this city proud.

Fantastic stop, would have liked more time. Hop on Hop off bus works best for this port due to it's small size.

My favorite port. Do yourself a favor and take the boat tour. Incredibly beautiful. I want to go back.

We had a wonderful tour guide who told us all about life in Finland. We saw the Rock Church and then went to the Winter Wonderland ice bar for a shot of vodka and time to spend there. We chose to do the husky sled ride which is extra and a bit expensive, but lots of fun. Enjoyed the day.
