More about...


Finland

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.

Cityscape

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).

Landscape

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.

Take home

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!

New Perspective

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.
