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, 19thof June 2020), 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.

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. For Gustavelund and Krapi, it is a 40 to 50 minutes’ walk, so you may prefer to pre-book a taxi.

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