We wish we could have stayed for lunch but ran out of time. It's an interesting way to get some history of the region. Tip: get the commuter ferry over and not one of the tourist boats - you will save around 10 euros :-)

I especially enjoy walking along the southern tip of the island though, where there are almost no tourist, only a few joggers, it becomes more quiet.... More

We did not og to the open air museum, we just walked around the Island and enjoyed the beautiful nature and the views. The squirrels was great, they ate nuts from our hands.

Seurasaari is a small island near the city. You could take a nice walk there and see squirrels there. Take some nuts with you and get new friends :) There are also near an old cafe Adjutant and the museum of the president Urho Kekkonen. It will be a mic day.

Seurasaari provides beautiful views over the ocean around Helsinki. You can sunbathe on the shore or take a walk through the forest which covers most of the island. The strawberries growing on the forest floor are ripe in July in case you get hungry. The outdoor museum on the island has plenty of unusual buildings, like a Sami hut &... More

Another beautiful Island definitely worth it when you're in Helsinki and want to relax and cut off with your daily routine. So quiet, so peaceful, so lovely and located right in the center of Helsinki.

This is an outdoor museum of typical finnish old buildings and lifestyles. The island where it is located is really beatiful . Walking around the island is a lovery stroll and gets you a good amount of fresh air. One reaches this place with bus no 24 leaving right from Helsinki centre. Trip is approx 20 mins and allow 1-2...
