Motorhome Hire Drives Finland

Finnish Lapland:

Located in the north, in the Arctic Circle, this is the perfect place to spot tundra and reindeer. Understandably, the area is busy around Christmastime. Despite this, it can be enjoyed year-round. Campsites for motorhomes can be found at Lomakeskus and Uruniemi. Lapland is the largest and also the most northern area of the entire country of Finland, it is also widely believed that Santa’s home is here in the city of Rovaniemi. Lapland has many different cities to visit, including Levi, which is one of Finland’s most popular ski resorts. With that said, you actually have many different ski resorts, including cities like Suomu – where some people believe the best snowsports in all of Europe can be done. Lapland, aside from Santa, is also known as a place with the Midnight Sun. Here, the sun doesn’t set all the way during certain times of the year. Before it sets and gets dark, it begins to rise again. This unique event makes Lapland a unique tourist destination.

The Aland Islands:

Autonomous islands off Finland’s southwestern coast that provide a pretty drive before you rest up at Notvikens Stugor & Camping or Kattnas Camping. Brushing up on your Swedish might be a good idea before heading here, as little Finnish is spoken. Many people when visiting here will take one of the famous Archipelago ferries to visit the area. These islands have a large variety of different activities and sights, such as the famous Kastelholm castle from the 1380s. One can also see the fortress of Bomarsund, which was built by the Russians in the 1830s. The best part about exploring the Aland Islands is also the great abundance of nature and calming views that surround you. If you want a history lesson, or you want to enjoy architecture, you can do it here in the Aland Islands.

Southern Finland:

It offers a fine and scenic coastline right up to the Russian border and is accessible from the country’s capital, Helsinki, which has motorhome campsites on its outskirts. Other accommodation for drivers of recreational vehicles can be found in Olulu at Nallikari Camping and Anttola, where Lakeistonrannan Leirinta is situated. The south is famous for places like Turku. Turku is a 13th-century town known for being on the mouth of the Aura River. It is widely believed to be one of, if not the oldest city in all of Finland. Many people who come here will do so to see the famous Turku Castle and Cathedral. The capital of the country, Helsinki, is also located in the south of Finland and is the most visited place in the entire country. In Helsinki, you have a great mix of old architecture and modern living. You can truly get to know the country itself, even in the capital city of Helsinki.
