We only had a few hours to explore Helsinki, but we managed to squeeze in a trip to a microbrewery that made various beers and ciders, including one made with lingonberry.

After our brewery visit, we wandered the streets and ran into this furry guy. I guess he'd seen better days.

Helsinki also had a nice open air market. We thought about trying reindeer sausage or other local foods, but we're not big fans of fried, pickled or smoked fishes - so we had pizza back on the ship :-)

Ooooh I love lingonberry! They have it in the Ikea cafeteria and they used to sell bottles of it concentrate too.
