Runoilijan Tie Review

One of the most popular excursions from Tampere is the Poet's Way steamboat tour along Lake Näsijärvi. The Tarjanne, built in 1908, passes through the agricultural parish of Ruovesi, where J. L. Runeberg, Finland's national poet, once lived. Shortly before the boat docks at Virrat, you'll pass through the straits of Visuvesi, where many artists and writers spend their summers.
