City Sherpa Program

Jump to last reply

International Travel News (ITN) had a brief article on the City Sherpa program offered by Helsingin Sanomat which is a publication in Helsinki. I went to their website but the English language portion contains no description of that program and I have no Finnish.

My wife is descended from Swedish-speaking Finns and we plan to visit Abo and Helsinki next year. The City Sherpa program supposedly allows travelers with special interests to contact people in Helsinki with similar interests. I thought it might be interesting to pursue meeting some Swedish-speaking Finns on our trip to learn more about their lives and particularly about life in Sweden in the late 1800s. Any ideas?

Many thanks,
