Water cruises in Finland - wonderful pastime
Finland can be rightly called “the kingdom of snow”, “the museum of nature” and “the water power”. The proximity of the Baltic Sea as well as numerous lakes and rivers in this wonderful country give a lot of wonderful opportunities for various cruises on the water expanses.
Snow-white beautiful liner, which is filled with colored lights, on the crystal clear water surface, bordered by the shores with beautiful landscapes under the dome of blue sky - what could be better! Water cruises in Finland will give tourists many unforgettable impressions.
Cruises on the Baltic Sea
Cruises on the Baltic Sea aboard the comfortable ships are the essential part of modern holiday in Finland. If you want something more simple and close, it is possible to arrange a walk along the coast by a small motor vessel. However, no matter what ship you’ve chosen, the endless water expanses will capture you due to their mystique and will create the indescribable feeling of unity of space and time.
Modern cruise companies offer many different versions of sea voyages for the choice of clients: from the simplest to the most luxurious. In all seasons Finland will surprise the tourists with bright moments and wonderful opportunities for cruises on the Baltic Sea and the Saimaa Canal.
Modern ships - mini-cities
Modern conquerors of sea depths – liners, ferries, yachts – look like more than the whole cities for recreation, rather than just the ships. The most demanding traveler will hardly find fault there.
Modern ships are equipped with the latest technology. They will give their passengers the fairytale extravaganza of SPA and swimming pools, cafes and restaurants, discos and casinos, cinemas and playrooms for children, shops, tennis courts and even football fields. There are all recreational facilities aboard the big ships for a quiet and measured travelling with maximum comfort.
