Caravanning in Finland
This story happened on: 14/06/2017
As a caravan club member I thought you might be interested in our trip to Finland this summer. I booked the ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland via the clubs European booking system and we drove then to Amsterdam. I am sure many will have visited Amsterdam so won't dwell on the naughty ladies, great sights and bicycles everywhere. Our journey then took us through Germany stopping in Bremen before arriving at the port of Travemunde. The ferry is expensive from there to Helsinki but it has to include 2 days and cabin accommodation. We opted for the meal deal and had breakfasts and an evening meal with wine all at a high standard. We arrived early on the morning of arrival and were a bit worried about a drive through Helsinki with the van. Fortunately the port of arrival is to the east of Helsinki and we were able to motor North easily. So far we have visited 3 sites all of which can accommodate caravans and motor homes. The facilities are good and you are rewarded with beautiful scenery of trees and lakes. The sites are marked and many can be found in the European caravan club book. The roads are generally quiet and wide with good road signs coloured blue. We have reached Savonlinna and are heading for the Artic Circle then down through Norway, Sweden, Denmark and back to the UK through Holland. Give it a try. We are towing a Lunar Clubman SR with a Range Rover Sports tow vehicle.
