Lots of Islands and archipelago full of experiences

Away from it all: island hopping around Finland’s Turku archipelago

When we know that it is possible to travel more and better, we no longer want anything else. We know that adventure is within our reach, and we want to share it with those we love most. And we also want MORE!

That is why I invite you to travel with me, so that you can discover FINLAND in a way that respects the culture that is going to welcome us and the fauna that we are going to observe, because above all we want to generate a trip with a POSITIVE IMPACT!

But first, let me introduce how this work!:

What are you looking for Archipelago of Finland?

Perhaps what I look for in each of my trips…Islander way of life, the Baltic Sea, coastal national parks.

Discover the different landscapes that nature offers us and learn more about how people live in other parts of the world by sharing a cultural immersion with the local population.

Today I bring you a trip that I have prepared with great enthusiasm since we are going to fulfill one of my greatest dreams (and I hope yours too) together in Finland.

I am Harri, coordinator of this trip and an inveterate traveller, restless ass, who escapes to any part of Finland without thinking twice. I always travel with the aim of showing the beauty that we have on this planet to protect it, take care of it and generate an impact on the consciences of the people who travel with me.

If something defines me, it is the passion for animals. I am a lover of nature and I believe that we should protect it especially when we travel, generating the minimum possible impact so as not to exploit it but rather to conserve it.

This is the Finnish adventure designed for you

Our team does not get stressed doing the typical excursions in a hurry. The objective of the trip is to enjoy each place surrounded by people who above all love nature and want to discover the destination in a conscious way with the impacts that we are going to generate in the destination.
Nor will we go to the same places as other tourists. Combining the extraordinary known with the special unknown will make your senses explode with every step you take.

And on our return home, we will be the loudspeaker to minimize the exploitation of the resources that most tourists unconsciously generate when they travel.
We will be agents of change!

You will live the rawness of Nature, the ancestral culture, the authenticity of being a tribe.

I will accompany you along a route designed to experience moments of truth in a country that overflows with magic for those who know how to find it. Because we will get away from the tourist area to truly connect with every moment that nature will offer us exclusively, far from organized excursions for large groups.


Who accompanies you on this journey?

Hey! I am Harri, I am Harri, a Finn living in Spain and passionate about travel, animals and outdoor adventures to little traveled places, always trying to do it in a responsible and conscious way for the planet and local communities.

I admit that I have always liked to travel, discover remote places and live new experiences. And yet, a few years ago, I went back to my roots and returned to my origins by active travels. I had the opportunity to take a daily sauna with a subsequent dip in the lake, paddle with the blue of the sky melting into the water, stop at a laavu to pick a few blueberries and eat something on the grill… It was a very intimate contact with nature, but not a cloistered nature, but alive, where people unfold. This is how the Finns feel their land.

This is how the idea was born

Upon returning to Spain I felt calmer in mind and satisfied with the hunger to travel. It took me a while to realize: 25 years traveling the world and it was the first time I felt this stillness after a trip. And this is what I would like to share with you, another non-invasive way of «doing tourism», respecting the environment that surrounds you and integrating into the environment as the locals do.

Travel companions more important than destination

The intensity of the journey comes from what we create together.


We believe that it is vitally important to form a team with people with the same tastes and values.

In addition to us, you will be accompanied by between 8 (at least) and 12 (at most) fellow travelers.

But not only that, the local team that makes the trip possible is part of this adventure. There will be moments of the trip where we will enrich the way sharing moments with guides and local people…

All the people who decide to join this traveling experience will go through a kind of interview with us to check the affinity with the team and confirm that we are all online.

In this way we will create a very nice and related group, with open and adventurous people. that multiplies the experience exponentially.

Because all the people on the team add up by contributing their grain of sand and thus creating an unbreakable pineapple.

The best memories on good trips are moments that you share with other people.

Tours and activities in and around HELSINKI AND TURKU

Gastronomic experiences and adventurous activities in some of the most beautiful and breathtaking landscapes near of the Baltic Sea.


BEST FOR BIKES: Lets try circular routes they might have been made for cyclists as the winding roads that cross the city or archipelago encourage us to drive more slowly. 

TOURS AND ROUTES: Although the length of the Archipelago Island HoppingTrail might not sound much to an experienced cyclist, it’s worth leaving plenty of time as there is lots to see along the route in the summer. Like at Turku, there are plenty of museums, historic buildings, fortresses and ruins in the archipelago as well as the Saaristomeri National Park, one of two national parks in Finland to be awarded PAN parks certification as a protected wilderness area. This makes it an ideal place to explore the varied natural landscape, flora and fauna, e.g. on a guided Kayak trip.

Professional photos: we will take a photo with the northern lights in the background, when possible included in the price of the activity.

Taking your time to appreciate your new surroundings

Attractions in National Park

Landscape of the national park: The labyrinthine Archipelago Sea, off southwestern Finland, has more islands than any other archipelago in the world. The archipelago scene varies from larger islands dotted with rustic pastures and vibrant villages, to wild and windswept rocky islets. There are more than 180,000 islands running along much of the coastline making the region an island-hoppers dream. The sizes vary from larger populated islands to very small ones.

The laid-back islander lifestyle and a strong maritime culture are key characteristics of this fascinating area. Finland’s capital, Helsinki, has also held onto its maritime charm. Beaches, handicraft markets, small town events, cafés and village shops – Finnish coastal towns are especially lively in the summer months.

During this travel in Finland’s unique Archipelago we will passing also stunning nature and idyllic fishing villages, they draw travellers who want the peace and beauty of the mosaic-like Turku Archipelago.
