Family Self-drive Tour in Finland: Moominworld, Åland and Helsinki

Family Self-drive Tour in Finland: Moominworld, Åland and Helsinki

Adventure tour designed for families with children under 12 years. You will make a roundtrip in western Finland starting from Helsinki. Lakelife in Lohja, visit to the Moominworld and Kastelholm castle and an activity day in SmartPark. Last but not least two days in Helsinki.

Kisakallio  is a sports resort located 40min from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport. You can take a rest, enjoy lake life, sports outside (and inside if the weather is not favorable) and rich breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. You will stay in a comfortable family apartment.  

Naantali is a small, idyllic town next to Turku, our old capitol on the west coast. Turku is worth stopping by - go and see Aboa Vetus, a medieval part of Turku, which was revealed in archeological excavations. Also worth seeing is the Turku Castle and Suomen Joutsen, a museum ship located in Forum Marinum. In Naantali you will stay at a golf resort. Why not to have a game there too but the reason the route comes here is the Moominworld.

Moominworld  is a theme park created in 1993 by Dennis Livson. Moomins are characters created by Tove Jansson (1914-2001) for her children's books. In 1991 the Moomins became live in animated  films. There is no Finnish child, who would not know, who the Moomins are. The Moomin books have been translated to many languages and Tove Jansson has become the most translated author of Finland. Moominworld is not an amusement park. It is a fairy tale island with Moominhouse of course as well as many other attractions inviting children to play along. In case your children are schoolchildren you might want to choose the Väski adventure island instead.

Åland island  is a self-governed island province belonging to Finland. It is known as the home county of potato chips. In Godby there is a factory shop of Taffel Chips. It is also a summer paradise with many wonderful beaches. The most interesting attractions for families with children are the Kastelholma castle with their children's room and the activity park Smart Park in Eckerö.

Smart Park is about learning through play. In the traffic park, kids can drive mini trucks to take milk to the dairy and vegetables to a food factory, thus getting an idea of where our food comes from. Smart Park offers opportunities to build a sand castle, drive a Segway or a boat, pet animals, build a hut and try a round of adventure golf. There is an indoor experimentarium and a track with illusions to baffle your brain.

Helsinki  is the last destination of the roundtrip. You will arrive there in the morning and can spend the morning in the Korkeasaari zoo close to your hotel. After getting your hotel room evening is all yours. You can spend time at the hotel beach or book an extra activity (kayaking, tree-top abventures, BMX biking...)  as you like.

Suomenlinna  is a sea fortress, one of the Unesco World Heritage sites. You will take a ferry to the island. After a short children's guided tour you will get a picnic basket and can live like locals. Back in Helsinki you will take your car and drive to Linnanmäki amusement park - or take a break and visit Linnanmäki in the evening.

Please remember we can always make small changes to the program according to your wishes. You may also buy the selected destinations separately.
