Vacation rentals in Southern Finland

Apartments in lake and coastal location

In Southern Finland, travellers will find a vacation rental which is situated either on the Gulf of Finland or on the shores of the numerous lakes.

The inland wide lake landscapes offer a residential area in idyllic nature. These can be found in the north-eastern Parikkala or in Padasjoki in the centre of southern Finland.

Vacation rentals in untouched nature

The province of Southern Finland, with its sparsely populated areas, offers numerous locations where you can spend your holiday undisturbed in a holiday home. Whether you want to rent a small vacation rental for two or a spacious villa with the whole family, you will find peace and relaxation in all regions. In the east, for example, holidaymakers live north of Niukkala, on the south coast in Porkkala or in the north southwest of Joutsa.

Of the more than 2 million inhabitants, most live in the capital Helsinki and the suburbs Espoo and Vantaa.

Landscapes of Southern Finland

Among the most important national parks are the eastern Teijo National Park and the Nuuksio National Park near Helsinki. The landscape presents itself through moorland, deep forests, lakes and wilderness.

Travelers and Activities

Southern Finland for hikers

For hikers, Southern Finland is a popular destination, as it is not only the multifaceted nature but also the right of public access. This means that you can move freely in nature without restriction. Hikers can take countless tours through Finland's national parks or use one of the official hiking trails. A popular hike northeast of Lahti is the 17.2 kilometre Juustopolku Trail.

Southern Finland for families

The untouched nature of Southern Finland is an ideal environment to rent a vacation rental with the whole family. Here you can explore the wilderness with your children, take part in boat trips or swim in the summer. In southwestern Turku, the "Caribia" adventure pool invites you with its many water attractions. A visit to the Särkänniemi amusement park in Tampere, which has roller coasters, an aquarium, a planetarium and an animal park, for example, brings variety. Another attraction of the city is the Spionage Museum, where children can take the agent test.

Two internationally known rock-pop musicians come from Southern Finland: Samu Haber, singer of the band "Sunrise Avenue" and Ville Valo, frontman of the band "HIM".
