Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Step out of the city life by going to The Archipelago Trail and Bike Rental - by Carfield. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Turku: Kurjenrahka National Park (in Poytya), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Next up on the itinerary: have some family-friendly fun at Moomin World, explore the historical opulence of Turku Castle, and examine the collection at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo.

Plan my Turku trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Cardiff, UK to Turku is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Cardiff to Turku. In July, daytime highs in Turku are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Mariehamn.
