Extraordinary experiences on rails
On the European Adventure Train, it’s the journey that counts, not only the destination. Our strength is quality not speed.
Unique chance to become a train company owner
The European Adventure Train aims to buy heritage train operator and expand its operation and organise dozens of journeys across Finland. Our company, in a strong expansive phase, has investors such as Helsinki-Tallinna railway tunnel consultant Peter Vesterbacka and Onnibus founder Pekka Möttö already joining in.
You don’t need to settle with microwave meals at the European Adventure Train journeys, instead, we offer genuinely high-quality food. In our fine dining train concept the food is prepared by Michelin star chefs.
In the Summer you can travel from Helsinki via Turku to Naantali in a Adventure train. The journey includes treasure hunts, face painting, good food and surprise performances.
We offer a diverse selection of music, ranging from singer-songwriter guitarists to electronic music and opera.
We can add an unforgettable dimension to your event whilst providing a handy train connection tailored to your audience.
You can travel in style in homey carriages with cosy seats and a calm atmosphere
Over the weekend train journeys with several live performances. The programme of classical musicians and other virtuosos is published closer to the journey
A part of history that remakes the future
This train will help us on our way to fulfilling our dreams. We have already made the contract – now we are bringing together the capital. The company has negotiated a deal about a museum fleet which we will use to organise numerous experiential train journeys from Adventure to Opera trains. You can also book your private train carriage or even the entire train. By joining the crowdfunding you’ll receive exclusive benefits and access to VIP journeys.
This is a tested concept
We have already tested the idea with a couple of pilot journeys that cemented our belief in the product. We produce numerous train journeys yearly, but to really reach our vision we need our own fleet. You now have an exceptional chance to support our mission.

Finnish railway company expands its operation - initiates crowdfunding for acquiring a fleet
It is rare in Finland to have the opportunity to own your bit of a railway company – even more so of an experiential train company.
Finnish Adventure railway company is strongly expanding its travel business with a funding campaign started on October. European Adventure Train produces themed experiential train journeys aimed at various target audiences and trips to sport and cultural events, among others.
The European Adventure Train aims to buy a heritage train company and expand its operation and organise dozens of journeys across Finland. Our company, in a strong expansive phase, has investors such as Helsinki-Tallinna railway tunnel consultant Peter Vesterbacka and Onnibus founder Pekka Möttö already joining in.
– We will use the funding for increased marketing, expanding operations and specifically for the down payments of acquiring our own fleet, accounts Robert Ramstedt, the Head Coordinator of the European Adventure Train. – The most unique thing here is that now every Finnish person has the historical opportunity to own a part of a railway company, and to gain a foothold in business that is usually not open to individuals.
The European Adventure Train, founded in 2020, has so far only had small-scale operation but has gained vital experience in running passenger traffic. The company has organised, under the brand Reissujuna, Moomin-themed train journeys from Helsinki to Naantali and trips to various summer festivals, for example.
– In the next three years we aim to majorly expand the passenger traffic business with both our own and rented fleet. By 2025, the company aims to own at least three railway engines and twenty carriages, and even to become an operator of some standard railway traffic. We are also not ruling out running trips that have their destination abroad, tells Ramstedt.
Experiential trains are very popular in many other European countries and around the world. Orient Express and other equivalent nostalgia and themed trips gather tens of thousands of passengers yearly. The European Adventure Train believes that similar travel could also attract tourists to Finland.
– So far the nostalgic and themed train travels have mostly been run by single steam locomotive trips, but the European Adventure Train’s goals are much more than that. The aim is to make the company, through its ownership base, a real people’s railway company, that serves both Finnish and foreign travellers.
