The small town of Riihimäki stands roughly in the centre of southern Finland, about 45 miles north of Helsinki. If you hire a car in Riihimaki, you’ll soon find that it has become a local transportation hub, with important road and rail links to the capital and the rest of the country. The surrounding countryside, meanwhile, is a mix of farmland and thick forest. The nearby Häme lakes and hills are one of the best areas for outdoor sports and recreation. Perhaps the most popular local attraction however is the Puuhamaa theme park, which specialises in non-powered activities for children, like slides, bouncy castles and mini-golf.
