Vegan Travel Tips for Finland
Getting around Finland is easy with relatively affordable flights (Norwegian Airlines has some of the most affordable flights and offers free WiFi). But the easiest and most affordable way to get around is by train or bus. They both offer free WiFi and are almost always on-time. Getting to or from the Helsinki Airport in Vantaa, is only 5 Euros on their new train line (Ring Rial Line). The train takes about 32-minutes from the airport to the center of Helsinki. Tickets need to be purchased in vending machines before entering the train. While they don’t often check for tickets on their trains, the fines for not having a ticket are very costly, so it doesn’t make sense to take the risk.
Finland’s Cruise Ships
Two of Finland’s larger cities Helsinki and Turku are costal cities in the southern part of the country and have frequent ships taking reasonably prices daily trips to Tallinn, Åland, Stockholm and St. Petersburg. These ships also offer affordable cabins which can be booked with your trip fare and on night cruises let you awake refreshed at your destination. Two of the larger shipping lines, Silja Line and Viking Line have ships with all the amenities of floating shopping malls, each with several restaurants and bars, and they tend to be very popular, especially during the warmer months. Unfortunately the vegan dining offerings on these ships is quite limited, so we would recommend bringing your own food with you.
Finland is one of the cleanest and safest countries you’ll ever visit. It also has one of the best educated populations and while they are often quite shy, they have a truly welcoming and modern culture. The capital Helsinki, is a beautiful port city with beautiful parks and squares, easily accessible islands, lovely seaside trails and pedestrian paths, modern museums and historical landmarks, and a wonderful summer farmer’s market (kauppatori).
