Destination of the Month: Beautiful Aulanko in Hämeenlinna

LikeFinland team visited Aulanko in Hämeenlinna few weeks ago in September. Hämeenlinna is located just an hour's drive from the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, which makes it a nice mini holiday destination.

As a nature-loving family, we wanted to find out what kind of outdoor activities Aulanko offers.

 

WHAT IS AULANKO?

Surrounded by two waters, Vanajavesi in the west and Aulangonjärvi in the east, Aulanko is not only a beautiful but historically significant area. We were surprised by its versatility.

Aulanko was formerly known as Karlberg and was originally built for a Polish Countess, to whom Aulanko's founder, Colonel Hugo Standertskjöld (1844-1931) was in love. However, the countess never arrived in Finland.

Standertskjöld wanted the Karlberg to be open for everyone. His numerous creations that still remain consist of the Aulanko lookout tower, Ruusulaakso Pavilion, Temple of luck, Bear cave as well as artificial islands and artificial lakes. This all gives you an authentic historical and nature experience.

Many of the latest destinations in the area are named after Aulanko's most famous host and builder, including two golf courses in Aulanko Golf, Hugo and Eversti, and the adventure park HugoPark, opened last year.

IN PEACE AND PRIVACY

Aulangon Rauha contains several accommodation units for rent by Aulangonjärvi lake. The accommodation company Evon Luonto - Peace & Privacy offers villas also near the Evo hiking area east of Hämeenlinna, and in Loppi, south of Hämeenlinna. (By the way, 'rauha' in Finnish means peace, and 'luonto' means nature.)

We stayed in a fully renovated Aulanko Grand Villa, opened in spring 2017. It is suitable both for families and for larger business and other groups. The Villa of 350 m2 includes several bed rooms, sauna facilities, and a large lounge with fully equipped kitchen.

The Aulanko Grand Villa is a nice place to spend holidays, for example, with friends or to organize family reunions.

The villa's speciality is its own game room with billiards, air hockey and ping-pong tables, darts and table football. Children were very excited about it, and the best thing was that it made the kids forget about the smartphones!

We would have liked to stay longer, as Aulanko offers plenty of nice things to do and places to see, for all ages. One weekend is not enough!

If you really want to be in peace and enjoy the nature of Aulanko, with no strangers, the villas of Aulangon Rauha is the right place! We were surprised that the villas are rented for only one family or group at a time.

BEAUTIFUL NATURE OF AULANKO

There are eight National Urban Parks in Finland, of which Hämeenlinna is the eldest, founded in 2001. The land area extends from the centre via Häme Castle to Aulanko.

We did not have a precise plan but after having explored the map we decided to head our nose to the scenic Lookout tower of Aulangonvuori Hill.

The trails were well marked and there were maps along the trails.

We felt once again: Are we really in Finland?

From the tower we continued to the Ruusulaakso pond and the lovely Ruusulaakso pavilion. What a great spot for a picnic!

FUN THINGS TO DO IN AULANKO

HugoPark

HugoPark is an adventure park opened in summer 2016 near the Aulanko spa hotel. There are 7 tracks in the adventure park, and most of the courses are suitable also for children. The recommended hight limit is 120-140 cm depending on the course.

HugoPark has a continuously-assured ZAZA2 system, where the adventurer's harnesses are hooked in the safety wire all the way.

Eetu, 6yrs, was inspired by the course 1. Although the course runs low, there are points on the course, where the smallest children may not survive without a help of an adult. Aada, 10yrs, experienced the courses 2 and 3.

None of the Hugo courses was physically extreme, but the courses 5-6 tracks certainly require more courage – especially in the jumps.

Other activities at Aulanko Park: mini golf (equipment rental from the hotel), disc golf and beach volley.

At the end of the climbing adventure we enjoyed a lunch buffet at Aulanko Golf's restaurant Eversti. The lunch was tasty and of high quality. Kids liked it too.

You can find restaurant services also at Hotel Aulanko.

LikeFinland explored a new adventure destination in Tampere: Prison Island!

We - LikeFinland team - visited this summer the fourth Prison Island of Finland, which was opened in Tampere in April 2017. Prison Island is a family adventure destination that has its roots in Sweden. Popular Prison Island has opened its prison cells already in Vantaa and Jyväskylä in 2015, and in Helsinki last fall.


Prison Island Tampere is located in Tullintori Shopping Centre. Photo: Likefinland.com

In Prison Island your goal is to collect points as a team (2-4 persons), by solving tasks in prison cells in certain time, approximately 2-5 minutes per cell. But at first you need to figure out, what are you supposed to do in every cell to gain the points.

Some of the tasks are easier than the others, and some of them are so tricky that you literally need to be as clever as Einstein to solve them. There were many of those that we didn’t solve and that makes Prison Island so interesting destination.


Amazing wall paintings of Prison Island Tampere. Photo: LikeFinland.com

Our team consisted of 2 adults and two children at the age of 6 and 10. At first we saw a video that gave us all the information we needed to start our adventure in Prison Island.  

There are 23 cells in Prison Island Tampere. You can choose the order and the cells you want to enter. If the task has been solved, you see a green light and if not, the light is red. If you want to try again, you can enter the cell as many times as you want.


You need a key card to enter the prison cells. Photo: LikeFinland.com 

Before going to a cell, you should look at the info table outside the cell. It tells you, how many people are needed to solve the task with full points, what is the level of the full points, and what is the stress level of the task.

Even more interesting is the question of whether it is a tactic, technology or physics needed in the cell, which is also marked at the info table!

If you think that you don’t get sweat, you are wrong! But you can choose, which kind of tasks you try first. You can leave the cell at any time, the door is not locked. And you can also try the same cell again, when the door light is green.

Clothing is good to be sporty, not at least the finest dress from your wardrobe. In some of the tasks, the ability to crawl may be required.

A player can choose between 60, 90 or 120 minutes of adventure. We think that 60 minutes is too short, if you'll try to solve the tasks seriously. We had 120 minutes – even that time really flied!


Photo: LikeFinland.com


How did we managed?

For us, Prison Island was not a whole new thing. Prison works as an adventure for families as well as for work mates or friends. Prison Island can be a little bit too demanding for children under the age of 10, but if the team consists of people of different ages, then everything works better. :)

Favorites and mysteries

The favorite of the whole family - and really addictive - was the cell called The Nest, where we tried to find a solution by visiting the cell 8 times. We were close but didn’t manage this time.

Also the Slippery Slope was one of our favorites and we achieved full 100 points from it! Points can be tracked from the light board, outside the cells, during the adventure.

We found Prison Island Tampere with its 23 cells a really nice destination for the whole family, even if the tasks were partly quite challenging. For example Tilt, Einstein, Boxes and Cliffhanger were mysterious puzzles for us. We didn’t receive any points from those.


One of the most challenging cells. Photo: Likefinland.com

The final score of our team was 578/1775. For us, Prison Island and some of the tasks were familiar and the points were fairly good. Typical total points for beginners are from 150 to 300.

Prison Island is a nice family destination, but it also offers a great experience for couples. Also Birthday parties (with party rooms) can be arranged at both Prison Island and in Megazone Laser Tag, which is also re-located destination in Tampere.

New Megazone is located right next to the Prison Island with same info desk. And you can also combine the Prison Island adventure and Megazone adventure!

Destination of the Month: Heinola – City of beautiful parks, cafes and museums

One of the most interesting summer towns in Finland is Heinola, which is located in Päijät-Häme province near Lahti. The distance from Helsinki to Heinola is about two hours by car.

Heinola is a special inland city because there are several big bridges around the city. One of them is a magnificent, nearly thousand feet long Tähtiniemi bridge - over Kymijoki river along Highway 5 - that was completed in 1993.

We had visited Heinola once before as we wrote about Harju Pavilion, which is considered as one of Finland’s most beautiful cafés according to our readers. We had also visited earlier the Sport and Leisure Centre Vierumäki, located 13 km from the center of Heinola towards Lahti.

MUST SEE DESTINATIONS OF HEINOLA

MUSEUMS

We visited two of Heinola’s museums. Heinola City Museum, was built in 1872, having served previously as a town hall.

At the latest exhibition “Pienet Piimäsuut” (10.6 - 20.11.2017) visitors can look back at their childhood. There is a playroom upstairs, where children can try on old-fashioned clothes. They even have permission to draw on the certain wall!

The permanent exhibition contains nationally valuable collections, for exemple a large collection of items designed by Anja Juurikkala for the Arabia ceramics factory.

A short distance from the City Museum you will find Heinola Art Museum that organizes changing exhibitions all year round, and the amazing House of Chief Constable Aschan. While walking in the rooms of both museums and watching their Gustavian style furniture and decoration, you could well imagine yourself in the same era!

The renovation of the house that was built at the end of the 18th century (ca. 1780) was started by the city in 1986, and it was opened as a museum three years later. The Gustavian style furniture and interior decoration tells of the time, when Heinola was the seat of the Governor.

The paintings of Nils Schillmark, one of the first artists at the end of the 18th century, can also be seen on the walls. Also the garden of the house is laid out in late 18th-century style.

House of Aschan. Photo: LikeFinland.com

Heinola is also worth a visit because of the scenery of the Heinola National Heritage Area ('city park'). There are eight National Heritage Areas in Finland, of which Heinola belongs to the elders, together with Pori and Hämeenlinna.

Heinola has nice hiking trails. In Jyränkö, on the other side of the Kymijoki river, there is a trail called “Juustopolku” (16 km) to Vuolenkoski as well as a lighted trail (12 km) to Vierumäki Sports Center. Playgrounds for children can be found around the city.

RANTACASINO

RantaCasino is a family-owned restaurant, and it has been operating in Heinola since 2003. The entrepeneurs, Marika and Stephen Cronin, also own and run a small Bed & breakfast Cronin's Café & Guesthouse (www) outside Heinola center.

RantaCasino is located at the picturesque harbour of Heinola. Restaurant’s big sunny terrace at the river bank offers an unforgettable scenery.

RantaCasino. Photo: LikeFinland.com

RantaCasino, formerly a summer restaurant, has expanded its opening hours. Only in midwinter, in January, the restaurant is completely closed. There are also band nights and various events such as the popular Oktoberfest at RantaCasino.

RantaCasino serves great modern European food and festive dinner menus. Extensive lunch is available from Monday to Friday.

It would be nice to stay a little bit longer and enjoy the amazing sights over the river and try out, if it is really true that RantaCasino has the best and widest selection of beers and ciders in the town.

Heinola can be reached by water from Lahti and Jyväskylä. Boaters can find places from the guest harbour right next to the RantaCasino.


HEINOLA BIRD SANCTUARY

The idea behind the Heinola Bird Sanctuary is to take care of injured wild birds and return them back to the wild. In addition, it is an interesting destination especially for the families with children.

Heinola Bird Sanctuary was founded in 1963 at the initiative of Anthony Bosley. Bosley was interested in tropical birds. Birds are brought to Heinola from all over Finland. Approximately 30-40 % of injured birds can be returned to nature.


Photo: LikeFinland.com

In addition to domestic bird species, the Bird Sanctuary is home to pet birds that have been abandoned by their owners, such as parrots, poppies and cockroaches. Approximately 250-300 birds are given annual care, and some will stay there for years.

Heinola Bird Sanctuary has also an interior exhibition room filled with Finnish bird and bird species and butterflies. Last summer, the QR code was added to the permanent exhibition, which gives the visitors more information about the animals.

Heinola Bird Sanctuary has free entrance.

WAFFLE CAFÉ HARJU PAVILION

Beautiful Harju Pavilion, located on top of the ridge, in Harjupuisto Park, date back to the beginning of the 20th century, when an eastern-influenced Art Nouveau building served as a recreational venue for spa visitors.


Harju Pavilion. Photo: LikeFinland.com

The Harju Pavilion, which is known by its freshly baked sweet and savoury waffles is open now for the fifth summer.

Cafe entrepreneur Anne Koski told us about this summer's novelties. There has been changes in the waffle selection as well as in other coffee delicacies. Also salad dishes are available at the café this summer. 


Photo: LikeFinland.com

Heinola Summer Theater nearby brings many of its customers to enjoy delicious waffles and the nice landscape over Kymijoki river.

In addition to the café, Harju pavilion has a great variety of live performers. Also the exhibition room upstairs offers many interesting exhibitions during the summer.

CAFÉ KAILAS

Café Kailas is a Central-European-style cafe located in a historical Siltasaari island.

The 5-year-old cafe is named after the poet Uuno Kailas, who was born in Heinola.

The café building is a former sauna, built by a merchant and the nobleman Niilo Helander for her wife Fanny a hundred years ago. Helander’s villa in Siltasaari, was destroyed in the Russian air bombardment on the first day of the Continuation War in 1941.

Päivi Niemiaho and her husband Matti Kantola have renovated the island in accordance with the spirit of the early 20th century. The uniqueness of a small island with its delightful arched bridge, pond and gazebo is worth a visit!

Kailas offers delicious pastries that are baked by a local Pekan Leipä bakery.

There is also a playground for children in Siltasaari and an ice cream kiosk. On the terrace of Café Kailas you will see live performers during the summer.

LikeFinland experienced Treetop Adventure Huippu in Espoo

Treetop Adventure Huippu was opened in Leppävaara Sports Park, Espoo, two years ago in 2015 - and it is constantly developing.

The most prominent novelty of this summer is 'Little Huippu' for smaller children. Little Huippu is a moveable wooden-framed adventure track with a platform height of 1.8 meters. There, small adventurers move in a secure harness. The Little Huippu stayed alongside the big Huippu until the Finnish Midsummer ("Juhannus"), and now it has been moved to Sello Shopping Centre in Leppävaara, Espoo.


Photo: LikeFinland.com

We experienced the treetop adventure as a family - two adults and two children (age of 6 and 10 years). We all had a great time!

There are eight high ropes courses at Huippu. Three of the courses - the easiest ones - are located on the top of the hill and the rest five at the bottom of the hill. Those (at the bottom) may run up to 18 meters above the ground. 

When you come to Huippu for the first time, the adventure starts with a security training where the guides show how to use the harness and the safety system. All the adventure parks in Finland have their own security system that must be taken into account, for example, the belaying methods and the courses may differ from each other. Huippu has a continuous belay system.

It means that all adventurers on Huippu courses stay fastened to a safety line at the starting steps of each course, and they stays fastened until returning to the ground through the final dismounting slide.

You can always ask the instructors for advice at both the lower and upper courses.


Security training. Photo: LikeFinland.com


Good to remember

In this season every climber has a ring-locked handle that is attached to the harness, which maintains the frontal direction in the final dismounting slide of each course. We found it very useful.

When you come to Huippu, it is good to dress for the weather in a comfortable outfit. The harness and a safety helmet are included in the price of the adventure. If you want, you can buy cheap climbing gloves from the ticket office.



The new ring (left) stops you spinning during the final slide. Photo: LikeFinland.com

Different courses

The courses are marked by different colours (green, blue, red, black) according to their difficulty. The green course is the easiest and the black course is the most challenging.

Of course, also this year, one of us, Henri, had to experience the Tarzan swing! Free fall over Leppävaara is worth experiencing! You get extra advice for Tarzan swing from Huippu's instructors.


The upper green and blue courses fit well for beginners and for children. Photo: LikeFinland.com


Safety Tips

  • Follow the security instuctions during the training carefully, and always ask if there is any question.
  • Thread a pulley of your harness into the zip wire at the beginning of each course.
  • Do not hold the cable at the final dismount slide. Make sure the previous adventurer has left the landing area.
  • Ask the staff to check the tension of your harness if you suspect that it has loosened.
  • Dress up by weather and exercise. Enjoy the high altitude! :)

Adventure day in Huippu, which is one of the biggest treetop adventure parks in Finland, is a nice experience for the whole family. Also the rest of Leppävaara Sports Park area with its summer oasis - Leppävaara lido, Angry Birds playground and a 1,700 square metre skatepark is worth a visit. 


Shopping Centre Sello and Leppävaara railway station are located about 2 kilometers walk away from the sports park.

Destination of the Month: Svartå Manor in Raseborg - one visit will capture your heart

We made a visit in one of the most beautiful manor houses in Finland, Svartå Manor, at the beginning of May 2017. The Svartå Manor is located in Raseborg, in the Western part of Southern Finland, 'South Coast Finland'. It takes one hour by car from Helsinki to get Svartå village, where we visited Svartå Manor for the first time.

The Svartå Manor environment is an old ironworks area. On the other side of the river there is the oldest mill in Finland that is still in function.

We were really surprised about the extent of the area - and above all - the beauty of the place. The wooden castle is surrounded by a wide variety of buildings and a lovely park area with its romantic bridges, statues and the unique water lily path.


Photo: LikeFinland.com

When we came to Svartå, we felt that we would be somewhere else than in Finland - even in a different era. Summer flowering was just beginning.

The yellow wooden castle, built in 1792, is one of Finland's most precious manor houses. The manor house, designed by well-known architects Christian Schröder and Erik Palmsted, is Finland's largest non-ecclesiastic (non-churchy) wooden building. Other special features of the Manor are the first hand-blown double windows in Finland, and parquet floors made of four different types of wood.

It was interesting to hear that the manor house has been owned by the same family for over 200 years, with the exception of a 45-year period in 1900s. Luckily, in 1985 Magnus Linder bought the Svastå Manor back to the family. Since then, the area has been actively developed, and the family company manages the restaurant and accommodation in the area.


The staff of Restaurant Linnankrouvi. Photo: LikeFinland.com

The most remarkable lords of the Svartå Manor were Magnus Linder II who built the manor, and Magnus Linder who later bought the manor back for the family. Hjalmar Linder, Finland’s richest man lived there at the beginning of the 20th century. He was great culinarist - the food and drinks were ordered from all over the world.

The current host of Svartå Manor is Magnus's son Filip Linder and his wife, Christine Linder, who is managing director of the restaurant and hotel operations. The Svartå Manor property is funded and protected by the National Board of Antiquities in Finland.


Svartå Manor Museum and guided tours

The big yellow manor house serves today as a museum. You can only enter the museum with a guide. The guided tours are open from 6th of June until 12th of August (2017). The tours are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. (www)

The tours are available in Finnish and Swedish and on request in English, German, French and Russian.

Gorgeous countryside hotel

In Svartå Manor you can stay at the countryside hotel consisting of five historical buildings built in the 19th century. Hotel offers rooms from single rooms to cottages that are suitable for families. The buildings are located in an idyllic park, where the scenic Mustionjoki River flows. A two floor suite 'Merlin’s Tower' is romantically situated right at the riverside.

Packages

Bon Vivant Summer Day -package, 119 € / person

A 4-course dinner at the Linnankrouvi restaurant, one night in a charming double room (Extra cost for single room +30 €), breakfast buffet in the restaurant.

The package is available 1.5 - 30.8.2017. More information and reservations: phone +358 (0)19 36 231 or info@mustionlinna.fi

Is the destination suitable for families with children?

n the yard of Svartå Manor there is no traditional playground with slides, swings and trampolines, but nearby, a few hundred meters away, there is a new public playground right next to the local beach, by the Mustionjoki River.

The environment and buildings, which most of the children have seen only in story books and thrilling stories of the castles' ghosts, will surely stay children's minds until adulthood. The guided summer tours of the museum are suitable also for children with an adult.

For the kids, there is also an orienteering map with tricky questions about the park.

Bicycles and a rowing boat with life jackets are available for the guests, as well as yard games like a Finnish lawn game 'Mölkky' and badminton.

Svartå Manor is great place to stay at least for a couple of days. At the same time, you can visit other great destinations nearby, such as Fiskars and Billnäs Ironworks villages, Tytyri Mine Experience in Lohja, and Raseborg Castle Ruins as well.

Extensive park area 

The park surrounding the buildings of Svartå Manor is one of the largest private historical parks in Finland. We made a one kilometer walk at the park area, which feels like retreat for the soul with its water lily path over the water, romantic bridges and statues. The park is a great spot for picnic.

In the English-style park, you can admire its flowers and plants and exotic species of trees that Fridolf Linder planted in the park at the end of the 19th century.

Renewed restaurant Linnankrouvi

At the end of our visit, we enjoyed lunch in restaurant Linnankrouvi, a Neo-Gothic restaurant building built in the mid-1800's.

There was a large extension project for the restaurant building in the spring. A new bright pavilion was built to replace the terrace, which more than doubled the number of restaurant places, being now around 200.

Linnankrouvi invests in genuine flavors and uses near produced food products. 'Today's lunch' included asparagus salad, smoked salmon and creamy panna cotta with fruits. It was a very delicious meal and nice ending for our Svartå Manor visit!
