Alan Rogers Review
No trip to Finland would be complete without a few days stay in Helsinki, the capital since 1812. This all-year-round site has exceptional transport links, with the metro only five minutes’ walk from the campsite gates. It provides 165 touring pitches, all with 16A electricity hook-ups, plus an additional small field for tent campers. Shrubs have been planted between the tarmac and grass pitches. All visitors will want to spend time in the capital and a 24-hour bus, tram and metro pass can be bought at the metro station. Once on the metro, you are in the city centre within 20 minutes on this regular, fast train service.
Essential visits will include Senate Square in the heart of the city, and Suomenlinna, a marine fortress built on six islands in the 1700s. This garrison town is one of the most popular sights in Finland and is the world’s largest maritime fortress. Helsinki, on the other hand, is one of Europe’s smallest capitals and walking around the centre and port is popular, as is visiting the market square alongside the ferry port. The city also has a wide variety of art galleries and museums, many of which are free with the Helsinki card.
