Rent the best campervans and motorhomes in Helsinki
Rent a campervan in Helsinki and live unforgettable moments in Finland's rich landscape.
Helsinki will impress you with its beautiful national parks, a wide range of stunning lakes, and a unique web of coastal islands. And if you feel like living an even more complete Northern Europe campervan or motorhome experience, Stockholm is just a few hours and a ferry ride away!
Some of the best national parks near Helsinki on your road trip are the Liesjärvi National Park, the Kurjenrahka National Park, Torronsuo National Park, Valkmusa National Park, and Teijo National Park. These parks are located in the northwest and east of Helsinki.
If you're up to an adventure in breathtaking landscapes, get your campervan or motorhome rental running to visit other beautiful and dynamic national parks further away from Helsinki, such as Repovesi National Park and Isojärvi National Park.
There are plenty of activities for everyone at these locations. You can explore the surroundings with your campervan and go hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing in the winter, and even berry picking. The more adventurous can also go climbing in some of these locations. And if you like games, you will be glad to know that these parks feature geocaching activities.
Finland has a staggering number of about 188,000 lakes, so there are plenty of water activities awaiting you, such as paddling, canoeing, sailing and boating, kayaking, and rowing. The lakes that feature these activities are integrated into national parks.
Some Finnish rivers also welcome water sports enthusiasts. Drive your campervan or motorhome rental to the river Kokemaenjoki or river Kauvatsanjoki, get a canoe, and enjoy the fantastic sights of the river banks.
Be sure to take your rented campervan to the unique Finnish coast. Catch the best surfing waves to the northwest of Helsinki, on Pori beaches, and to the east, in the Gulf of Finland. Then, drive your campervan or motorhome to the windy Tulliniemi beach for more watersports, or to Padva beach for a beautiful sight of the labyrinthine archipelago of Raseborg.
If you travel with your campervan rental from Helsinki in the winter, keep in mind that it can get very cold in Finland, so be sure to check our article with tips on how to prepare your caravan or motorhome rental for the cold.
Get in touch with the campsite to find out if you can make a reservation, as some campgrounds prefer a "first come first served" policy.
That being said, here are some campsites near Helsinki for you to rest properly at the end of your busy days and recharge your campervan or motorhome: Santalahti Resort, Solliden Camping, Venesilta Camping, and Teijo Caravan Park.
You will find not only the essential services of drainage, electricity, and shower facilities, but also saunas, barbecues, water activities, playgrounds, and spots to have a warm drink. These campsites are located near all the national parks mentioned previously.
