An easy day trip 30 mi/50 km northeast from Helsinki, Porvoo is one of Finland's most picturesque towns whose old section, Old Porvoo, has 16th-century wooden houses and a row of distinctive red boathouses lining the riverfront. A particularly nice way to get to Porvoo is by taking the sightseeing boat MS Runeberg, which departs from Helsinki (and also stops at Haikko Manor, a famous health spa). We highly recommend getting your ticket reservations in advance and arriving early to catch the best spots on deck, especially on busy summer days.
