What a refreshing break from old towns, grand castles and majestic churches! Not that there is anything wrong with those. We just opted to experience a different side of Finland - the natural side. Kayaking on the Baltic was enjoyable, the scenery was beautiful and our transplanted Italian guide, Matteo, was very informative. For example, Baltic Sea temperature fluctuates more widely than other seas and oceans because of its low salinity, shallow depth and extremes of long days and nights. So it was 72F in July, warmer than the Pacific in our home of Southern California, and is frozen solid in winer.

Great way to spend a beautiful day on the Calm Baltic Sea. After seeing museums and churches at other ports, nice to enjoy nature and exercise for 3 1/2 hours amongst the many islands. Good tour guide. She even sent us photos after the cruise so you do not need to brig your camera on the water. This tour was not offered by the cruise line we were on. Glad we did not miss it.
