Overview

The World's Most Magnificent Archipelago The labyrinthine Archipelago Sea, off Southwestern Finland, has more islands than any other archipelago in the world. It has also been described as the world's most beautiful archipelago. The archipelago scene varies from larger islands dotted with rustic pastures and vibrant villages, to wild and windswept rocky islets. Scheduled ferry services take locals and trippers to the main islands all year round. Location of Archipelago National Park in Finland: In Southwest Finland Region in the areas of Kemiönsaari and Pargas/Parainen. Arrival: By car, boat and public transportation. Activities: Sailing, canoeing, voluntary activities. Sights: Örö Fortress Island and varying nature with rugged rocky islets, forested islands and wide stretches of open sea, the glory of flowers in traditional agricultural landscapes, autumn storms, the silence of nature in winter. Suitability: Since the national park is only accessible by sea, a visit requires thorough planning. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties. Services: Archipelago Nature Centre Blue Mussel, excursion harbours, campfire sites, camping areas. Services of cooperating partners are also available. Trails: Ten nature trails on land (0.3-3km) introduce visitors to archipelago culture and nature and two underwater nature trails.

Most beautiful place I have visited! Over 15.000 islands with wild nature. Outer islands best! A bit hard to find boat connections, but most of them are free!

You can´t find anything like this anywhere else in the whole world. Those who arrive Turku by ship say "I´ve never thought a ship can sail in the forest!" It´unique - and we know it and are proud of our archipelago. :)
