Taking the kids…

This route is an experience for the whole family and is also ideal when grandparents tag along.

You may even run into Leafy Man at Vekara-Varkaus festival, which offers a wide range of attractions covering the entire town of Varkaus in June. While Verkatehdas Arts and Congress Centre is a great venue for the Hippalot children’s arts festival, visitors to Hämeenlinna should never pass up the opportunity to visit the castle, which is a fine outing all by itself. The always spectacularly popular Pori Jazz also has its own special festival for children.
