Expedition to the Turku archipelago

The island of Finland are a different world of amazing beauty enjoyed mainly by Scandinavians. Everything here is slow and very calm: discreet but very vibrant northern nature, pines, mosses, national paths, wooden Finnish architecture and a special meditative Nordic hedonism.

Red boat hangars, flocks of swans instead of seagulls, jellyfish and beautiful northern landscapes. Finns know how to relax in nature, and you will see it when you come here. Small towns with cozy cafes, eco trails and almost empty islands are what we love the archipelago for.

    DAY 2

    TUKRU>>>KASNAS >>> BENGTSKAR

    We will go to the legendary Bengtskär lighthouse - the highest in Scandinavia.

    Paula, the lighthouse keeper, will take us on a tour and tell why a trip to the lighthouse for Finns is a kind of pilgrimage that everyone should make at least once in their life.

    We will stay overnight on Kasnas island.

    DAY 3

    BENGTSKAR>>>FARO ISLAND

    FARO Island was closed to the public for a long time, but recently it was demilitarized. Now the military equipment left on the island is on display in an open-air museum. Each such "attraction" has a sign with a detailed history.

    And also on Oro, there is a great sauna with a very beautiful descent to the water - right in the Archipelago Sea.

    DAY 4

    FARO ISLAND >>> UTOYA ISLAND

    We will reach the southern point of the archipelago - Utoya Island. Only 45 people live on the island, but it seems that there is no one around at all.

    It's great to walk here: to wander along a wind-eroded promontory, on which military fortifications are still preserved, to look at huge boulders on which waves break, to watch the most beautiful clouds and sunsets of the archipelago. You can also send a greeting card by local mail from the southernmost point of Finland.

    DAY 5

    UTOYA ISLAND>>> HOUTSKARI

    On this day, we will have a short crossing and an active coastal program. First, we will go to the vintage boat museum, and then to the Isaksson's family vegetable farm. The Isaksson family has been growing vegetables on the island since the 1980s. The farm has a self-service barn shop where we recommend stocking up on the tastiest tomatoes and seasonal fruits. You can pay for purchases on the farm with a card.

    HOUTSKARI>>> NAGU

    We will visit the large island of Nagu, where a small town with a 17th-century church is located.

    We'll have a picnic on the island or go kayaking, see the sunrise and the sunset on the beautiful sandy beach by the marina.

    DAYS 7 AND 8

    KASNAS >>> TURKU

    On the last day of our trip, we will practice our sailing skills in the long crossing to Turku. In the evening we will gather for a farewell dinner with memories and impressions of the trip.

    The check-out from the boat is the next day at 9 am. If you wish, you can continue your journey in Finland or take a ferry to the Åland Islands or Stockholm.
