We have the cleanest air in the world, green forests and clear waters, and they are free for all to enjoy. Explore the archipelago, go on excursions on the waters and hike the forest trails. Experience Island Hopping, fatbike tours, sunset canoeing and the excitement of sea fishing. Take a tourist guide to the wooden old town or a trained instructor to join your adventure, and enjoy your trip even more. Be well – you and nature will be well cared for.

Enjoy the art in galleries and parks, or roll up your sleeves and create your own art in workshops. The open-air summer theatre is an essential element in experiencing the Finnish summer.
