Bike and Boat

Hopealinjat “Bike and Boat” – ticket combines your biking trip with a cruise on the Lake Pyhäjärvi or Näsijärvi.

It makes your travelling even easier than before.

The city of Tampere is surrounded by two big lakes; Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. These both have their own shores and harbours and depending of which lake you will bike around, you can choose your starting harbour.

There are different cruises to choose from depending on what you want. For example, you can choose a family friendly Maisemareitti that includes a cruise to Nokia Eden, or the Karhunkaataja that is good for an active cyclist. 

Lake Näsijärvi by Steamship Tarjanne

Explore the amazing Näsijärvi Lake Trail by Steamship Tarjanne.

Cycling and boating at Näsijärvi Lake is a match made in heaven. This very old boating route is called “Poet’s Way” and it takes you to a unique and nostalgic journey through the most beautiful lake sceneries of Finland. It is truly a trip to remember. The route’s name comes after a very well known Finnish poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg, who used to live in Ruovesi (a harbour on the way), where he wrote many of his famous poets.

The starting point for the “Bike and Boat” -trips is on Lake Näsijärvi is Mustalahti Harbour at Tampere, which is Tarjanne’s home harbour. This is located in the heart of Tampere, right next to the famous Amusement Park Särkänniemi.

The Poet’s Way route from Tampere to the last stop Virrat takes 8 hours, but there are many stops on the way where you can get of (or on) and continue your journey by bike, or vice versa.
