Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A picturesque location by the shores of Lake Näsijärvi and a lovely place to go for a sauna with locals. 2 saunas with varying heat and two lake areas to dip into allow you to cater your sauna experience based on your desire that day.

    My favourite Lake for canoeing, swimming, diving and now Stand Up Paddling. Nice cafeteria run by the lake association and they rent boards cheap only 8€ / hour. I recommend on a beautiful day.

    Pyynikin uimaranta (Pyynikki Public Beach) is a nice sandy swimming beach within walking distance from the city center. This is a nice place for swimming, sunbathing, playing beach volleyball and SUP surfing.

    There is a sandy beach there but there are beautiful rocks and cliffs, too. Actually these cliffs named Jalkasaari Lookout Point are a very nice excursion destination even if you are not going to swim.

    The summer cafeteria of Pyynikki Public Beach has a beautiful location but unfortunately service was very slow.

    Pyynikki Public Beach is a nice place for the whole family. This time weather was warm but very cloudy. We have to come back here later.

    Elianderin uimaranta (Eliander Swimming Beach) is a nice small beach next to Särkänniemi Amusement Park. We had a heatwave in Finland but surprisingly the beach wasn't too crowded. This is a quite beautiful place. There is a quite new playground and a nice ice-cream kiosk on the beach, too.

    We hired both skis and skates from Hiking Travel on two separate days whilst visting Tampere and highly recommned them. They were very welcoming, knowledeagle and professional. We had a lot of fun on the lake and were given great advice on how to use the equippment in a relaxed and friendly way. Many thanks for giving us such a lovely experience.

    We just returned home after completing a 8 DAY TOUR TO HELSINKI – ROVANIEMI -INARI with Scandi Travel and what an incredible experience!

    The itinerary was perfect. That’s what drew me to Scandi Travel to begin with, they covered all the main things I wanted to see/do for my time in Finland/Lapland. Everything went so smoothly, not a single hiccup or trouble along the way. I can honestly say the trip was perfect.

    Scandi Travel’s communicating was also great. We had lots of questions in the lead up (and a few along the way) and everything was answered in a friendly and timely manner.

    The trip itinerary gave us plenty of opportunities to see the Northern Lights, which we did end up seeing in Inari.

    The accommodation, guides used, companies used for day trips, were amazing.

    Can’t say a single bad word about our experience - would definitely recommend!

    I took Silverline from Tampere via Visavuori to Hämeenlinna in July. The lake scenery with its endless islands is superb and the boat is comfortable enough. I appreciated the hearty buffet and there was even some entertainment (young guy with a guitar). The commentary was bilingual, Finnish and English, to the point and intelligible throughout. There isn't a better form of slow travel in the lakelands of Central Finland.

    Far the most excellent activity in Tampere for all ages while the surrounding landscape is just beautiful. The gears are good, and advisors excellent.

    What is important, everybody can do this. No any previous experience is needed. This is the place to be when you consider to so something else than burn your base rubbers off from your shoes.

    I had a great experience on this course and learned many survival skills and tips on being out in the wilderness. The course instructor was fantastic, and very knowledgeable about the outdoors. The location was beautiful and the meal we cooked was delicious! I definitely recommend Boreal Quest to anyone that is interested! Thank you, Markus!

    The place isn't massive but they have all training available, PADI recreational and technical. Fully equipped with tanks, drysuits, and tank fills including Trimix needs. Looks like they do a lot of servicing and repairs too. Staff friendly and flexible. I guess it stands to reason that they have good knowledge of local sites. They also do ice diving courses. A good place to drop in to, and they'll sort you out dives, courses and gear no problem. My courses went fine, prices reasonable/about the same as most places.

    What a superb canoeing trip! Very calm and professional advisor, great humor and customer service. Equipment in 5/5 shape and very nice coffee & snacks break during afternoon trip around Lempäälä lakes & rivers. Strong recommendation for these services!

    Cant rate the whole experience high enough. Miikka was very accommodating to our request and knew the best spots for the sunset and calm water. The boat itself is very well designed and a great space to be. The rooftop terrace gives you a great 360 degree view of tampere and nasijarvi and great spot for having a BBQ. Will definately book again with Tresla
