Hi, I'm looking for some recommendations for a short-term tour of St. Petersburg from Helsinki. I'm thinking of taking the fast train there and staying 1-2 nights. Is it safe for women travelling alone to St. Petersburg these days? Thanks in advance.
Can anyone recommend a good cycle hire place in Turku centre please? We need to hire either a children's trailer or a tag-along to attach to the back of the bike.
Does anyone know of any nice routes from Helsinki centre? Turku centre?
We are also staying in Akaslompolo and would love to cycle around there or do a short drive to somewhere we can hire bikes. Any good rental places around there?
We have 2 young children and could cycle around 20 miles each trip
My partner and I are planning to spend 10 days in Finland in December this year - we know it will be cold and dark and not the best time for snow or Northern lights but unfortunately December isn't negotiable. Anyway, we're planning on doing all the 'cold' things - ice hotel or similar, husky ride, northern lights, reindeer, ice breaker if possible, etc. So we're looking for any recommendations or suggestions to get the most out of our time and any tips on what to wear!!!

We're thinking of creating a service that would help travellers interested in culture join social activities hosted by artists and other local culture professionals. We'd like to pilot the service in the summer of 2016 in Helsinki.
To plan the pilot service, we'd like to ask about your preferences, by answering just 6 questions at:

We are planning to travel to Estonia, Finland and Iceland in March to April 2017. We wish to have a nice warm (beach) holiday at the end of our trip. We are currently stuck for ideas on where to go to experience warm weather within two and half hours to three hours flying time from Helsinki, Finland? Unfortunately, we already have been to Western (France, Spain, Portugal) and all Eastern European countries. We also have been to the northern African countries and countries around Egypt…
we are taking a coed group of scouts from New York City to the FinnJamboree in July. But first we want to go on a 3-4 day backpacking trip, possibly to Lapland.
and anyone recommend a great route or national park, it really doesn't have to be in Lapland.
biggest concern is mosquitoes. this will be a first backpacking trip for some of them and I want to make it fun, rather than have them obsess over bugs.
