      First time in Helsinki - what area to stay in

      Helsinki Nov 11, 2016 at 1:12 PM

      Hi. I am planning a one week trip to Helsinki and would like your help in choosing an area to stay in. I plan to rent an apartment. I would like for it to be near good transportation and/or to be within walking distance of major tourist destinations/attractions such as museums, historical sites, interesting neighborhoods, architecture, that kind of thing. It appears there is lots to see and do so I am assuming I can keep busy for a week - is this correct?

      Hi all,

      I've just started an exchange at OAMK, and I have missed out on getting a bike because I thought I didn't need one. Silly me! Now, is there anywhere around Oulu where I can get a bike for around 40€-50€, second hand if necessary?

      Thanks,

      Rovaniemi - Christmas attractions & expenses

      Finland Sep 6, 2016 at 10:18 AM

      Hey guys,

      I am considering visiting Rovaniemi this winter to visit the Christmas attractions.

      I have some questions regarding your experiences with this destination:

      1. Is it very cold - bitter cold - in winter or bearable to go outside?
      2. How well can the attractions (Santa Clause Village and cave) be reached by public transport ? (expenses?)
      3. What is the cheapest and recommended offer to do a husky or reindeer sledge ride in the snow? I only saw prices from 200 Euros upwards. Are there any cheaper offers?

      Thank you for your responses and help!

      Kind regards,

      Ferry reliability in December

      Helsinki Aug 29, 2016 at 5:13 PM

      Hi, would appreciate some advice on the reliability of ferry trips in the Baltic Sea during December. Plan on boarding a ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki for transfer to a St Peter Line later in the day for the overnight trip to Saint Petersburg. We will be vacationing in Russia.

      From my research, I have discovered there are several lines between Tallinn and Helsinki, including Tallink Silja with a 2-hour sailing departing from Tallinn at 10.30am and arriving into Helsinki at 12.30pm.
      St Peter departs Helsinki at 6pm and arrives into Saint Petersburg at 9.30am the following morning.

      My questions are:
      1. How reliable are the ferries in terms of their schedule (departure and arrival times)?
      2. How frequently does the weather impact on ferry schedules during late December?
      3. St Peter Line's website appears to suggest check-in and boarding is from 1-3.30pm despite the ship only leaving at 6pm. Is this correct? I would have liked to spend a bit of time sightseeing in Helsinki.
      4. Where would you go through passport control and what would the procedure be? Upon arrival in Saint Petersburg?
      5. Upon arrival in Saint Petersburg, how long does it take ferry passengers to actually get off the ship?

      Appreciate your advice, comments and experience.
      Thanks!

Read about that the finnish southeast-coast is very nice with the arcipelago, idyllic towns and friendly people. Don't want to travel to the north, this can be another trip :) Both the Swedish and Finnish summer can reach high temperatures and this we want. Also read something about Aaland (?), Gotland and of course Stockholm. Seems to be nice places? Tell me more. Where have you been? How was it like?

      What ferry company would you recommend from Tallinn to Helsinki? Eckero is quite a bit cheaper. Do they both arrive at the same harbor area in Helsinki or is one more convenient to the buses and trams? Thanks in advance

      PS I realize that Viking also serves the two cities.
