Finland and Helsinki family holiday by train
Description of Finland and Helsinki family holiday by train
With more and more people taking to the train as an environmental measure, there’s no better way to explore the landscapes and culture of Finland than by rail. This fabulous Finland family holiday lets you conveniently travel on a round-trip from Helsinki, with kid-friendly carriages, in a relaxed and eco-friendly fashion.
Spend time in idyllic national parks such as Repovesi (perfect for a little cycling) and Linnansaari, which is composed of hundreds of islands and islets. Here you’ll tour the archipelago by motor boat, pausing for an island lunch by an open fire, and later by a giant canoe.
Depending on your travel dates, on reaching the beautiful town of Savonlinna you’ll take a steamship across Lake Saimaa to your hotel on the island in Punkaharju. Here you’ll have time to wander the neighbourhood, touring markets, swimming and taking nature walks.
You’ll make your way by train back to the capital, Helsinki, for a couple more treats including a tour of the famous Suomenlinna sea fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a visit to the Linnanmaki amusement park that the kids will adore.
If you’re looking for a family holiday that combines charming accommodations with nature, culture, fun and is also good for the environment, then this relaxing train tour of Finland will be perfect for you.
