Midsummer celebrations


Midsummer at Lake Tuusula

Lake Tuusula provides the perfect location to experience Finnish Midsummer celebrations. Bonfires and Midsummer dances belong to the traditional Finnish Midsummer’s Eve (Friday, 25th of June 2021), and we here, at Lake Tuusula, have both! Several bonfires are lit all along the shoreline, and the bands play dance music at several locations. Please note that bonfires are only permitted when the weather conditions are suitable.

All locations can be found from the local map.

Why not stay the night at a hotel? Enjoy the celebrations until the early hours, and then enjoy a good night’s sleep and wake up to a delicious breakfast. Your midsummer mini-break couldn’t be easier!

The best ways to get here are either by driving or by taking a local train to Järvenpää or Kerava train stations and continuing your journey with HSL buses. Plan your route with HSL. Alternatively, you may wish to take your bicycle with you on the train and continue with your bike.

Please note that there is no hop-on hop-off bus operating during the Midsummer Eve.
