     Tour description
</p>
<p>
     Fazer’s delicious confectioneries have been in the core of Finnish culture since 1891. Fazer's most notable products include its classic Fazer Blue milk chocolate, widely regarded as one of Finland's most respected brands and a part of Finnish cultural heritage and cuisine. Now you can experience the company’s brand-new Visitor Centre where a guide presents us the company’s long history, wide product assortment, and innovations. The avant-gardist building, in the shape of two circles, includes a botanical garden, a café and a factory shop which is a great place to buy Finnish souvenirs.

     During this trip, we will also take a guided coach tour through the modern and historical city centre of Helsinki and hear interesting stories about the city and the nation. Filled with interesting and eye-catching architecture, the Helsinki is often called the Daughter of the Baltic Sea. The city skyline is dominated by the white large Lutheran Helsinki Cathedral and the redbrick Uspenski Cathedral, the largest Orthodox cathedral outside Russia. We will stop at the Sibelius Monument - an abstract sculpture to commemorate Finland’s greatest composer, Jean Sibelius. We will also visit the celebrated Rock Church which was carved out of and built directly into the ancient solid rock of the Helsinki peninsula. The inside of the church is bathed in a glorious natural light that enters through the glazed dome.

     The tour offers a delight for all the senses and includes product tasting at Fazer’s. Only a few of us can resist a chance to eat as much chocolate as we can!

     Please note: the tour of Fazer factory can be replaced with Gin factory visit and tasting. Please contact us for more details.
