Lovely for walking and fresh air

Beautiful island with great walks through history. Enjoy the fresh air and pop in to some lovely cafes there too. It is unspoilt and just a gorgeous place to visit.

Nice place for walking and calm down. Popular area, but not too crowded, I think. At mid summer you can enjoy of a bonfire over here.

I have visited this place both in the summer and in the winter. It has charme on both periods, although I prefer summertime. The open-air museum is informative, but most of all the seaside is fascinating and walking down the island is worth any time of the day. It is also possible to use a barbecue.

Seurassi is only a short walk from my apartment and I visit it often. Its a great place to picnic, walk the dog, take photos or just to go and relax.

The island has good roads and trails to go around. The atmosphere is nice. It is like going almost 300 years back. The buildings are from the 18th to 20th centuries. You can also enjoy coffee and pastries (and ice cream!). Please use public transportation (bus 24) from Helsinki City South. The island is open during summer, from 15.5.2017.
