Family Southern Finland by rail

Family Southern Finland by rail

Lakeland in a week takes you from Helsinki via Hämeenllinna and Tampere to central Finland. You will stay by lakes and countryside but also sense some city life in Tampere. 

Destinations: 

Log cabin Rokki .located close to the Erkkilä country home so I can serve you myself and we can take one activity on lake (= canoe tour) and one in forest (=berry picking) as planned. In addition to that you will have your own rowing boat and 4 fatbikes in usage on 16th and 17th of August. 

Hämeenlinna  is a small town by lake Vanajavesi 1h from the airport by train. Hämeenlinna has a long history  dating back to the middle age, so we can well start from historical point of view. On our way to iittala, we can make a short stop in Hämeenlinna to see the medieval castle.

Tampere  used to be the centre of the textile industry in Finland. Today it is the 3rd biggest town in Finland with its 230 000 inhabitants-  It is located between two lakes, Näsijärvi and  Pyhäjärvi. Almost 1/4 of its geogaphical area is lake. The best way to see the lakes is to get up in towers. Our local guide will take you on a tour visiting three of them, the picturesque old tower of Pyynikki, the newest hotel tower with a lunch bar on top and Näsineula, the sightseeing tower or the Moomin museun. If possible, we'll also take you on water either for a walk on a frozen lake or paddling by a giant canoe. For families there is also an amusement park in summer.   

Revontuli resort  is another very beautiful summer paradise next to a golf club in central Finland by a lake of course. Here you will stay in a family glass igloo. The August nights are already dark and if you are lucky, you might even see northern lights. Anyway August night nromally are warm and beautiful. 

We have included one activity. It can be a 2h fatbiking tour or a 3h guided hiking tour. or if you did like canoeing a lot in Tampere, even a canoe tour again. 

Helsink is avery walkable city but also a good idea is to rent a bicycle an make a wider tour round the city. The Helsinki festivals take place during your visit  so there is a lot to do. Please take a look at the program:https://helsinkifestival.fi/en/
