Add-on

TRAVEL GREEN

Since the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg only travels to climate conferences by train, the topic of train travel has been on everyone's lips again. The federal government has lowered VAT on tickets and in Denmark more and more travelers can imagine traveling by train. Experience the cosiness and get to know the country properly. Interact with the locals who take the train through forested Sweden every day and see remote places off the beaten track. Travel climate-friendly and with clean conscious is the motto of our trip!

EXTENSION: TALLINN

Add a day to your trip and take a trip to the Estonian capital of Tallinn, just a 2-hour ferry ride from Helsinki. On a day trip, relax during the crossing and then enjoy seven hours of free time to explore the city flexibly on your own. Immerse yourself in Tallinn's Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and discover the diverse museums, shops and restaurants.

BEAUTIFUL LAPLAND

Lapland stretches across the entire northern part of Scandinavia. A region the indigenous Sami call S√°pmi. The sub-Arctic climate characterizes this almost uninhabited, magical region of Europe, home to the last wilderness on the European continent. The pace is different here than in the rest of the world and all guests notice how unimportant everyday stress is when everything has to be adapted and subordinated to the extreme forces of nature. The time of Ruska offers a wonderful introduction to the magic of Lapland. Ruska (Finnish) describes the phenomenon when the leaves of the trees change color in late August / early September and transform the forest into an endless sea of colour. We recommend visiting Lapland at this special time to be enchanted by the beauty of nature!
