The original route that Silverline owes its name to passes in between the cities of Tampere and Hämeenlinna in the breathtaking sceneries along the lakes Pyhäjärvi and Vanajavesi. On the journey, we will make a special stop at Visavuori where visitors can explore the home studio of illustrious Art Nouveau sculptor Emil Wikström and drop in at the permanent exhibition dedicated to the satirical cartoons of his grandson, Kari Suomalainen. From Visavuori, it is possible to return to Tampere or continue the journey to its terminus in Hämeenlinna.
Soon after leaving the harbor of Tampere, you will see the magnificent ridges of Pyynikki and Pispala. Further along the route, the ship will pass through the spectacular strait of the Sotkanvirta River in Nokia before going by the famous churches in Hattula. Just before arriving in Hämeenlinna you can marvel at the formidable medieval Häme castle with its red brick fortifications rising high right from the very edge of Lake Vanajavesi.
We operate on the Tampere – Hämeenlinna route with m/s Silver Moon and m/s Silver Star. With their fully licensed comfortable restaurants.
On both ships’ restaurants, we place emphasis on locally sourced produce and ingredients and generally favor domestic materials and stock. We aspire to provide a modern Finnish cuisine especially suited to the scenery of the inland waterways with its islands and lakes. The wines for every meal come hand-picked by our in-house sommelier.
