Fancy a ride on the SpåraKOFF?

SpåraKOFF is a bright-red tram that has been converted into a bar, touring the central sights of downtown Helsinki. The only bar in a tram in Finland starts touring on 2 June and continues throughout the summer until 13 September 2020. A tour takes roughly 45 minutes. This pub tram has been a part of the Helsinki summer already for 24 years. It is operated by Helsinki City Transport.

The "pub crawl" takes just under an hour and is an excellent way to get to know Helsinki. You can hop on at Mikonkatu stop by the Helsinki Railway Square, no need to book in advance. The restaurant fits thirty and is decorated in classic pub style using mahogany and brass. There is beer, cider and refreshments available during the ride.
