Explore Turku's surroundings by going to Mathildedalin Kylapanimo (in Salo), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Raseborg (Ekenas Old Town, Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen, &more). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Vepsa Island, visit a coastal fixture at Bengtskar Lighthouse, make a trip to Kultaranta Garden, and let the kids burn off some steam at Adventure Park.
