Steam boat Tarjanne and the Poet’s Way June 6th – August 25th
The Poet’s Way steams off on the lake Näsijärvi when the steam boat Tarjanne takes the passengers on a journey to the past. Tarjanne’s charm still works after 113 years. The famous sound of the Tarjanne steam whistle starts the journey through the unique sceneries of Näsijärvi towards Ruovesi and Virrat. This route has inspired many Finnish artists, no wonder why! Tarjanne sails from the Mustalahti harbour.
