Fork in hand is a culinary walk around Helsinki’s city centre organised by Heather's Helsinki. You’ll get stories about Helsinki and Finnish Food as we enjoy a meal on the go! From the largest food hall in the city to the smallest local deli; the market hall and the market place; raw food and local food – Heather’s Helsinki has it all.
Description: You’ll get a native English guide and a fun trip through the city. We’ll focus on food and design, and you’ll get plenty of Helsinki stories, both from the recent past to long ago. Highlights include Stockmann department store, Esplanade Park, the Design District, Iittala Flagship Store, the Market Square, the Old Market Hall and Senate Square. Establishments included may vary depending on seasonal operations and menu items.
Good to know! The weather in Helsinki can vary greatly. Dress for the weather! Heather’s Helsinki recommends warm clothing and layers for winter, a rain jacket and a sun hat in summer. This is a walking tour and we’ll be walking on gravel paths, cobble stones and asphalt so good walking shoes are a must.
