      Fazer factory tour

      by Muscovite Online Now Jan 10, 2015 at 5:49 AM

      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' :)))

      I am considering to go to Rovaniemmi (finland) this febuary.
      I will have to leave from Malta to Munich to Helsinki and finally to rovaniemmi.
      If i arrive from munich at helsinki airport with just 95 min to catch the flight to rovaniemmi is this enough time.
      Also the flights will not be on the same ticket

      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!

      Hi!
      I have an upcoming meeting with a friend in Helsinki. She is not from Helsinki, and is not very often there. I want to take her out from the most famous downtown. What I would like to know is, what cafes in for example Sörnäinen, Helsinki, can you recommend very much? I want it to be something really nice! I'm really not for chains, so don't tell me to go to Picnic or something like that, haha. I don't know very much about Sörnäinen, or Hakaniemi, so I'm really in need of help. Thank you very much!
