Explore Finland on a road trip
Finland is perfect for a road trip this summer. Long summer nights in the land of the thousand lakes can be an adventure you will never forget. Our hotels are located from north to south for your stay or if you just need to take a pause and get out from the car to charge your own batteries.
THE BEST ROAD TRIP ON THE WEST COAST
This is our best recommendation for a route in the western part of Finland. Pass by old wooden towns, national parks and make a stop by the many beaches and islands in the Kvarken archipelago. Enjoy the maritime lifestyle and many summer events in the cities and explore various attractions not to mention the delicious food.
Enjoy the nature and tranquility of Siuntio
If you start your road trip from the southern Finland, you should visit the region of Siuntio. This is a good starting point on your journey towards the wonderful coastal cities such as Turku, Rauma, Pori and Vaasa.
Make your stop for a couple of days in Siuntio for the peaceful nature, old mansions and impressive castles. Our Scandic Siuntio is located in this haven of nature where you can try kayaking, swim in lakes, do some hiking and play some mini golf. From Siuntio you can conveniently continue your journey towards Turku, which is only about an hour and a half away by car.
Along Aura river lies the culinary hub of Turku
In southwest Finland, make Turku one of your stop to enjoy the summer in this historic interesting city along the Aura river. Stroll around in the idyllic wooden house area of Port Arthur and pay a visit to historical sites along the river or jump on a boat tour.
In Turku you will be absolutely delighted by excellent food, from budget to fine dining. Along the Aura River there’s plenty of eateries to choose from. You can also enjoy the river views from a boat tour while indulging in good food.
Stay at any of our three Scandic hotels, all of which are well located in the center of Turku.
