Explore Russia Visa-Free by Ferry from Helsinki: St. Petersburg - 5 days (CB-29)

It’s possible to visit Russia without the need for a visa, and this tour is one such holiday. Arriving by ferry from Helsinki, you’ll be able to discover the beautiful city of St Petersburg. You’ll stay in a centrally located hotel at Nevsky Prospekt and explore the city’s world-renowned tourist attractions including the Hermitage and Catherine Palace with a knowledgeable and professional guide.

Day 1
Helsinki
Departure to St. Petersburg. Ferry Princess Anastasia
We’ll depart Helsinki bound for St. Petersburg onboard the comfortable Princess Anastasia ferry.
Day 2
St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg City Tour. Peter & Paul’s Fortress
Our driver will meet you in the arrivals area of the port with a Go Russia sign board and you’ll transfer to the hotel. From there you’ll take a guided city tour of St Petersburg and pay a visit to the Peter and Paul Fortress. Occupying a commanding position on tiny Hare Island, the fortress was built by Peter the Great in 1703 to protect the land near the River Neva from attacks from Sweden. However, it didn’t see combat until 1917. Recently this fortress prison has had many of its buildings converted into museums and features a splendid cathedral containing the tombs of the Romanov monarchs.
Day 3
St. Petersburg
Hermitage Museum. Boat Trip on St. Petersburg Canals
Perhaps the most famous of St Petersburg’s many historic sights, the Hermitage is the focus for today’s tour. Once the home of the Russian Tsars and now a world-class art museum, this spectacular building would be a draw for its architecture even without the three million works of art that form its extensive collection. Dating from the Stone Age to the 20th century, there are paintings, sculptures, icons, coins and jewellery waiting to be admired, from just about every famous name you could imagine.

After Hermitage we will enjoy a trip along St. Petersburg canals (during navigation period). The looming silhouettes of the bridges, the grandeur of the waterways, the granite embankments with their various piers and slipways, the 18th and 19th century palaces and parks on the banks of the Neva and the canals, architectural landmarks in the form of the domes and spires of churches and cathedrals, visible from a long way off - all this contributes to the unique appearance of the "Venice of the North", one of the world's most beautiful cities.
Day 4
St. Petersburg
Catherine Palace & Amber Room. Departure to Helsinki
In the morning we will visit the Catherine Palace, another of Royal St Petersburg’s architectural masterpieces, located 25km south of the city at Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin). It’s a delightful baroque building designed by the Italian Bartolomeo Rastrelli and inside you’ll be wowed by the fabulously decadent Amber Room and its sumptuous interior decor.

Back at the hotel in St Petersburg, our driver will meet you with a Go Russia sign, ready to take you to the port where the Princess Anastasia ferry will be waiting to take you back to the Finnish capital.
Day 5
Helsinki
Arrival in Helsinki

Gary Thomas
Your 72 hr St. Peterburg tour was well organised and exactly what we required
Ronald Coleman
Our guide Tatiana was very knowledgeable and her English was excellent. She ensured all trips ran smoothly. Pickups and drop offs etc were well organised.
Sarah White
What was good: the expertise and efficiency of the consultant, especially in arranging the trip at short notice, the efficient, knowledgeable, professional and friendly guide in St Petersburg, the efficient and very polite driver in St Petersburg, the well planned tour programme that covered most of the major tourist sites in 3 days, the location of the hotel in central St Petersburg. A great trip - many thanks!
Seth Norman
Thank you for arranging the itinerary for me. I'm just on the boat back to Helsinki and I just want to say how well it was planned and how knowledgeable and nice the 2 guides where in St Petersburg and Moscow (Natalia and Elena / Helen). Thanks to all involved and I will be recommending Go Russia to others considering for this same trip.
Adrian Mclaughlin
Overall an excellent trip
Jay Guzman
Excellent guiding and arrangements by Natalia. Very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible to suit the small group. Also excellent support from the UK office.
Florence Knight
The tour was great. However, we crammed a lot in and we could have done with more time in some of the museums. However, the guides were very flexible and worked longer hours than the tour schedule. Saint Petersburg has a fantastic Artillary museum which we did in our own time. We also did the Faberge museum in St Petersburg in our own time which is also very good.
Lavelle Lozano
Everything was perfect and Go Russia made alterations and additions to suit me Absolutely FIRST CLASS. I cant think of any improvements everything was spot on
