I'm going to Suomi!

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

I'm going to Finland for 3 days (I've never been there), and this is what I was planning: 1 day in Helsinki, 1 day in some other city (I'll rent a car for that day), and 1 day in Estonia. What do you think about this? :D

 

What city do you recommend visiting near Helsinki?

 

Kiitos :)

Hi, one good choice could be Finland's old capital, medieval city of Turku. It is only 1,5 hours drive from Helsinki via a brand new motorway.

In addition to being a beautiful city, it also has more than 200 traditional caches within 5 km radius from the city center.

 

Welcome to Finland!

Nice! Except that Estonia is not a part of Finland. So You'll be just two days in Finland ... ;-)

 

I'll second the Suurnesus suggestion about taking Turku for the other city that you visit here. Easy drive and lots of caches to search. And a beautiful scenery alongst the river.

Turku is a nice city - I've been there several times. Turku is a right choice for you if you are looking for a city. On the other hand if you wish to visit a small country town then Porvoo could be worth visiting, see http://www.porvoo.fi/index.php?mid=724. Porvoo is only about 50 kms from Helsinki. The distance Helsinki - Turku is nearly 170 kms.

Hi

 

Fazerina was quicker, I'll second her choice:)

 

It takes about 45 minutes from center of Helsinki to center of Porvoo...depending how many caches you will find in between.:D

 

some geocaches in Porvoo.

Yeah, but I'll sleep in Helsinki everyday. :D

Thanks, I had never heard of Porvoo! I'll look into that. Too bad it is not on the way to Turku... :D
