Trip to Finland

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my adult kids to Finland -- their first trip and my return after spending an exchange year there 35 years ago.

We have 10 days and would like to take public transport if possible, but can rent a car. We'll also visit distant relatives in Jalasjarvi for 2 days. We'd like a 2 day side trip to Stockholm (ferry?)

Do you have accommodation and transport and cultural/music suggestions? Where we should go? The entire country is so changed after a trio plus of decades, all will be new again. We would also appreciate restaurant and site recommendations.

We are huge fans of nearly everything and very easy to please. My Finnish is gone, baby, gone, but I can count and say, "Suski Suohon!"

The budget is super light -- hard to do we realize -- and we are there in early July landing and departing Helsinki.

Thanks for your help!
Best,
RB

    If you search on my screen name under Finland, you will see some recommendations to people asking in the past.

    I have stayed in several furnished short stay apartments in Helsinki that allowed me to have more space and not eat in restaurants every day. You might consider that--though I only had to accommodate 1 person, so the places I have stayed may/may not have large enough units.

    I like to spend 1 day taking the trams around Helsinki to see the churches, government buildings, shopping district, perhaps the embassy area.

    I also enjoy the day trip to the fortress island--gets you out on the water, nice tour, if good weather it makes a great picnic destination. Boat leaves from main harbor and I think is covered by the mass transport pass.

    I have taken the bus to Porvou to see the red buildings. OK, but not a lot to see. You can combine as bus/boat round trip. Bus leaves from main bus station.

    Train can take you to Turku if you want to see the sights there.

    I haven't taken the ferry to Stockholm because of the price for 1 person in a cabin, but with a group I would do it. It drops you in the center of town instead of at the airport outside of town. Weeknights are cheaper than weekend nights. If you decide to fly one-way, check for online discounts for the train to/from ARN.

    Tallinn via ferry is also a nice long day trip.

    You can take the city bus to/from HEL to keep down cost. Drops you at the main train station.
