Summer in the Finnish archipelago

When the archipelago is buzzing with life
The Archipelago trails are open from 10.5 - 1.9.2024

Escape to the Finnish archipelago: experience summer bliss with cows, boats, and saunas!

The schools have closed, graduation parties are over, and June has arrived. It's the time when the archipelago's cows and sheep are taken out to summer pastures on islands and skerries to help with landscape management during the summer months. Boaters have launched their vessels and are now enjoying the waves and leisure in their cockpits and galleys.

Long bright evenings and nights, sauna baths, and delicious locally produced food. Troubadour evenings, weddings, and family celebrations. For many of us, summer in the archipelago is the highlight of the year. It's when we recharge our batteries for the darker seasons and enjoy social gatherings and the closeness to the archipelago's nature. The beloved new potatoes of the archipelago appear in early June on market squares and store shelves in the archipelago villages. Guest harbours light up their smokehouses, and summer guests arrive at their cottages, and prepare for midsummer and vacations.

Sheep are an essential part of the archipelago's landscape management during the summer months. They are taken out to summer pastures on islands and skerries to help prevent the overgrowth of vegetation and maintain the biodiversity of the region.

The Archipelago trails are open from 10.5 - 1.9.2024

The archipelago trails offer breathtaking views, picturesque landscapes, and rich cultural sites. These trails are perfect for hiking enthusiasts and bikers who want to explore the unique archipelago environment, rich with diverse flora and fauna, at their own pace.

The market event "Sommarstart" in Korpo and the Potato Festival "De Vita Päron" in Nagu kick off the summer season. Then, the music festivals and summer events continue throughout the archipelago, offering jazz, classical, and everything in between. Everything according to tradition, until the "Forneldarnas Natt" in August, which concludes the summer season and leads us into harvest times and autumn.
