Hotel / Bungalow:
We have been at Himos Leisure Resort for over 22 years. We live here traditionally in typical Finnish modern bungalows as also we have hotel rooms there. There are three different types of bungalows, see the description of the different bungalows on the homepage. The bungalows all have fully equipped kitchens, most have a sauna and some also have a whirlpool as an extra booking. After an action-packed day of rallying, enjoy the evening with your friends on the veranda of your bungalow. The hotel rooms are close to the lake, for those who want to go swimming in the evening or in the morning. But also from the bungalows you can reach the lake with a short walk.
The bus company, Sunny Busse, with which we travel, has also accompanied us for many years. We already have our regular drivers here. At most of the special stages, we have parking spaces reserved especially for Rallytravels where we park directly or only a few hundred metres next to the stage.
Food - Drinks:
For all self-caterers we will of course stop at a supermarket 2-3 times during the rally week. In the bungalows there is a fully equipped kitchen. At the stages in Finland you will always find kiosks from the local sports clubs with food and drinks. In Himos, near the bungalows and hotel rooms, there are restaurants, a pizzeria and a small supermarket. It is nevertheless recommended to always carry a backpack with the most necessary drinks and snacks to the stages. Also, small foldable camping chairs are always very popular with our guests.
Plan for 2024:
We plan to visit the shakedown, 6 - 7 special stages and the service park in Jyväskylä in 2024 as we have done in the last years.
We have rally fans from all over the world with us, mostly from Sweden, Austria, Norway, Germany and France. Our tour guides are in Swedish, German, English and French.
Our Rallytravels guides are all infected with the rally virus and work in one position or another in the rally business and are therefore qualified to answer your questions.
Our regular crew is Per Carlsson and Claudia Bidlas who are with us on all trips. On the bigger trips they are supported by Miriam Waldfridsson, Marc Hermes, Mattias Adielsson and Roger Turesson.
