The original route that Silverline owes its name to passes in between the cities of Hämeenlinna and Tampere in the breathtaking sceneries along the lakes Vanajavesi and Pyhäjärvi. 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 Hämeenlinna.

On the waves of silver

Further along the route, the ship will pass the famous churches in Hattula and continue through the spectacular strait of the Sotkanvirta River in Nokia. Right before arriving in Tampere, you will see the magnificent ridges of Pyynikki and Pispala.

We operate on the Hämeenlinna – Visavuori – Tampere route with m/s Silver Moon, whose fully licensed restaurants provide the perfect setting for admiring the changing scenery of the waterway. Enjoy the food and drink on offer, or simply unwind on the gentle waves.
