Need Advice - 8 day trip to Finland with kids

Jump to last reply

We will be in Finland Aug 8-16. Our groups consists of 2 families - one with 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 5 and 2) and the other with 2 adults and 1 kid (age 3). Our flights are in and out of Helsinki.
I have been browsing the forums and various sites and here's a list of places that look interesting:
1) Helsinki
2) Tallinn
3) Lapland (Rovaniemi)
4) Lake region
5) Aland Islands
6) St. Petersburg
Now I know we can't do all of that in the days we have - so what are the must sees? Which should we definitely try to include?

I also have a few practical questions:
1) Do we need to rent a car if we want to go to Lapland? We were thinking of taking the train up there - will we need a car there or is public transport/tours available?
2) How do we get to Lake region from Helsinki? DO we need car? How do we get about in the lake region for sightseeing? Is it possible to go from Lapland straight to Lake region?
3) Are there any sites for apartment rentals?
4) Is it possible to go from Helsinki to Tallinn and from Tallin on to Aland Islands?

I will really appreciate any help!
Thanks!
