      We are 9 of a family, including 1 Sr. Citizen 74 years, and 4 children (11, 12, 14, 18 year old).
      Arrive in Helsinki Station by the Allegro train from St Petersburg, on 27th May Morning about 10.30 am. We have tho leave by the 13.30 flight to Rovaniemi. We leave some luggage as te Hotel Holiday Inn City Center, as we return there the next day.

      How do we all go to the airport from the train station? will a van be better or take Metro / train??

      We return at about 4 pm on 28th May to Helsinki. We are there for the night. Then we have the cruise to Stockholm departing at 5 pm the next day (28th).

      What all can we do and see? How do we go about it?

      Can we hire minibus / van with English speaking Driver / Guide? From where?

      Tram ride??

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Lappeenranta for 2 weeks in June

      Hi VT members,
      I am so happy to find this website! There is so much information available to help me plan my travels! Some of your websites have more photos and information than the official websites.

      My husband has a work trip next month and will be in Lappeenranta for 2 weeks starting early June.

      My little boy and I are coming along. This will not be my first time in Finland, we visited in 2001 and were staying in Helsinki then. I bought the FinnRailPass and did a lot of train rides - Turku, Tampere and Rovaniemi! Yes, we took the overnight train just so we could visit Santa Claus Village. But we were a little too early for Winter! It was early November then.

      This time we are a little too early for Summer and will miss Santa Park which I'm sure my little boy will love.

      Thought we will be based in Lappeenranta, I intend to bring my boy out and about when husband is at work. Some places in my list are Moomin Park and Moomin Valley in Tampere. Will the train ride take too long from Lappeenranta?

      What are some of the recommended places in Lappeenranta or surroundings which we can go to by train, bus or ferry?

      Thank you for your tips! We are looking forward to our trip!
