Finland has an extensive railway network. With over 5,900 km of tracks, travellers can visit all major cities in Finland by train. Trains are operated by the national railway company called VR. Commuter service is also run by VR in the Helsinki region. The high speed train service in Finland is carried by the Allegro trains. These high speed trains also have an international connection to Saint Petersburg in Russia, from Helsinki in Finland. When travelling on board an international train, passport controls are frequent. Other stations served by the Allegro high speed trains include Vyborg, Vainikkala, Kouvola, Lahti, Tikkurila and Pasila.
Arrive on Helsinki, Finland’s capital, and discover the bustling harbor, steep in the coastal city and wander around Senate Square. Board a train to Turku, the oldest city of the country, explore the medieval castle and admire the wooden houses of Rauma, dating back to the 16th century. Or go to Lapland and meet Santa Claus in his native city of Rovaniemi (Lapland).
If you’re fond of wildness, hop on train to Lapland. There, you should see some reindeers and have some great opportunities to go trekking, canoeing or cross-country skiing. If you are looking for Northern Lights, you will be mesmerized by the one you can see in the Arctic Circle.
If you are looking for handcrafted souvenirs, meet the local Sami communities in Finnish Lapland and buy some wooden gifts. If you prefer jewellery, high-end fashion or even antiques, rush to Helsinki’s Design District or to Marimekko, where you will also find contemporary interiors and fashion too.
Eat & Drink
High-calorie food is necessary to withstand the climate… Rainbow trout, fresh salmon or perch coming from the Finland’s inland lakes are delightful. Try a reindeer stew in Lapland, pork and black pudding stew rössyopottu in Oulu or taste Karelian beef!
By train, reach Finland’s impressive Lakeland region. You should enjoy the trip to the wild forest, the large lakes and scenic views like the Savonlinna’s medieval castle.

"SMOOTH RIDE"Neil m.
TGV IS THE WAY TO GO IN FRANCE. MINIMUM CHECK-IN TIME. COMFORTABLE SEATING. FANTASTIC VIEWS. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. BEATS A PLANE ANY DAY!
"Perfect"Peter m. 22/06/2015
Beautiful trip in a comfortable train
"Better than flying"Peter m. 22/06/2015
Train was good and fast but need a USB port or two! Too much foot traffic in our carriage as people went to the restaurant.
"Very comfortable trip"Anne c. 22/06/2015
We travelled on the fast train, the train trip was comfortable, we travelled first class, free papers and a drink.
"Great train trip"Stephen s. 22/06/2015
Using printouts of E tickets was a first for me, but there were no problems, the rail staff at Barcelona Sants station were extremely helpful. We were in the first class section, upstairs. The seating was comfortable and once again the on board staff were friendly and helpful. The train was very smooth, the only problem was waiting for oncoming trains on the single track sections which resulted in the train being 35 minutes late. A really enjoyable train journey, I would recommend.
"Paris-Caen"Chris m. 22/06/2015
Basic, open seating,but comfortable with electrical points and table.
"Best way to travel to Paris"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a fabulous experience and a much better way to travel from London to Paris as against flying with all the check-in issues etc. City to city centre was perfect and border passport control and security baggage checking process at St. Pancras was a breeze. Why would anyone choose to fly when this service is superior?
"Excellent way to travel"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was an amazing and smooth journey. Travelling at speeds up to 300km per hr and was so smooth. Got to Florence in good time and without all the normal hassles you would otherwise experience with the flying options. This is just so much a better way to travel and all things considered - took less time than flying! Only problem was that the power points for plugging and charging laptops etc. was not working in the carriage - which was very poor for the 'Primo' class seats!
"Excellent way to travel"Brian p. 22/06/2015
Unfortunately, the power points for laptop connections were not working in the carriage but otherwise, another smooth journey. This is the best way to travel to Venice. You arrive in Venice right onto the main island and walk straight outside to where the water taxi's are. So convenient!
"Good travel experience"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a very good experience - with no issues getting our reserved seats. A nice train
"Nice train experience"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a much better experience where we actually got our first class and reserved seats without any issues. Quick and smooth journey.
"Off to the Cinque Terre"Elizabeth h. 22/06/2015
Everything was great. Good idea booking the tickets from Australia - convenient and allowed good preparation on our part. Perhaps advice about the app you can load to check options if you need to change plans. Also tickets not easily changeable overseas - need to go back via Australia. Perhaps you should warn about sharks at station who offer to assist, carry bags, etc then want to charge an exorbitant fee. Regards
"Rome to Florence"Jo-anne g. 21/06/2015
The terminal was easy to negotiate, and found our platform, carriage and seats with ease. We found the luggage storage was not sufficient for the number of travellers with large cases. Train travel suited our needs for this trip.
"Excellent"Kaye o. 21/06/2015
A pleasure to travel on this train.
"Very Good"Kaye o. 21/06/2015
On time clean and comfortable, a little more space for luggage would be useful.
