Kouvola is a town and municipality in southeastern Finland. Escape the urban bustle at Repovesi National Park and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. Museum-lovers will get to explore Lappeenranta Fortress and Motorcycle Museum of Finland. Explore Kouvola's surroundings by going to Sandcastle Lappeenranta (in Lappeenranta) and Pihamaa Estate & Winery (in Asikkala). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila.

Reykjavik, Iceland to Kouvola is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Reykjavik to Kouvola due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Reykjavik in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Kouvola: temperatures range from 17°C by day to 9°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can take a train to Tampere.
