    • Planning a trip to Rovaneimi

      Rovaniemi Sep 12, 2015 at 9:56 AM

      Hi there. My family and I (wife and a 6 year old) are planning our winter trip this winter to Rovaniemi. We are first-timers to this unique destination. We have sometime to plan for this trip. We will be booking our flight and accommodation soon. We are looking into the activities that we will participate in. My small one is interested in visiting the Santa Park. As it is a 5 day trip, we have not thought about other activities. We wanted to know if we need to plan ahead about our destination activities or should be just leave it when we get there. Thank you.

    • Ivalo to Kirkenes transport via Bus

      Ivalo Sep 5, 2015 at 3:06 PM

      Does anyone know if there is any mode of transportation to Kirkeness from Ivalo.?
      I went through and they are very expensive.

      I found the deal on from Ivalo hotel to Kirkenes Hurtigruten harbour pick up is 3600 NOK for 1-4 persons. We are two people only so does anyone going on 1st October from Ivalo to Kirkenes? If yes then it would be cheaper as they are charging anyway for upto four people and we are two only.

      Please contact me here and also if anyone has an idea of alternate way of transport please let me know..

      Helesinki-Stockholm Ferry

      by TooTallFinn24 Online Now Aug 31, 2015 at 12:13 PM

      Which ferry company and time of the day would you recommend for two folks without a car traveling in spring?

      A second option would be going from Turku to Stockholm but while the trip is shorter I hear the ferries are smaller.

      I’ve read in ‘Metro’ daily about Helsinki – apparently there is a tour into Fazer factory, and one can sign in. I looked up the café site, and there is no mentioning any such tour, in fact, the site is Finnish and Swedish only.
      Anyone heard about it? - I like things 'off beaten path' :)))

      Christmas/New Years in Scandinavia/Baltics

      by jjkent Online Now Aug 14, 2014 at 10:33 PM

      I am planning a winter adventure. I am a former Alaska resident and would like to spend a week or two skiing (Nordic classic and skate), ice fishing, skijoring, kite skiing, camping, viewing the northern lights, etc. I also am very interested in experiencing the culture in Scandinavia and the Baltics. Most of my friends are not even remotely interested in joining me on my winter adventure so I would love to join groups or find a guide to do these things. My time off is around Christmas and New Years. I would fly from the northwest US to Europe, probably Helsinki but I am open to suggestions based on my hopes listed above and in the interest of being prudent with the euros/dollars. Thanks!
