A great cruise to take especially if you are in a large group. The food was excellent but with limited vegetarian options.

For the fish lovers - must taste. The rest of dishes - acceptable. Definitely I recommend to visit while you are in Turku. Enjoy.

I've lived in Turku for 20 years with my Turku born husband but have never managed to take a s/s Ukko-Pekka cruise before. Well, it was about time to do so! We had a large party of 50 people traveling together on the upper deck which presents excellent views through the windows. My only regret was that I did not... More

The food on this cruise was stellar - actually served picnic-style on a small island about an hour away from Turku, with appetizers served on board heading out and dessert served on the return trip. On the island, there were at least eight varieties of smoked fish and salmon with different dressings (the bleu cheese stuffing was awesome!). Plenty of... More

I took the Ukkopekka steamboat during the excursion of a conference in which I participated in Turku and the overall experience was great. The day was sunny and the root through the islands of the finish archipelago was picturesque. We were offered traditional dishes during the short cruise inside the boat, but the peak of the eating experience was the... More

Nice cruise to Naantali. Not so expensive and about 2 hours on the boat. You can stay for up to 4 hours in the town and take the cruise back. Good day trip on a sunny day, worth your money.

This was an amazing few hours spent in Turku, the steamboat ride was amazing and the views were absolutely stunning, we were treated to an amazing supper "Turku style" The sunset we enjoyed was a experience of note, well done to the crew, this is a trip to savor.

I had a great dinner cruise on the s/s Ukkopekka. The cruise leaves the docks in front of their restaurant and is gone for four-hours. The boat serves appetizers and has alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for sale. Finland has different ideas about dinner cruises than the United States. You don't eat dinner on the boat, we stopped at an abandoned... More

We prebooked a lunch cruise on Ukkopekka for our visit this August, if a lunch has been booked then a table is reserved in the cabin with your names on - it is then possible to have lunch at any time during the trip. Lunch is from a quality buffet selection with hot and cold dishes to choose from -... More

We took the s/s Ukkopekka on the dinner cruise to the island of Loistokari - a tiny, tiny speck of an island about 45 minutes out from Turku. It was a magnificent trip, viewing the archipelago, and the monstrous ships coming in to Turku. The dinner at Loistokari was roughing it a bit - a blustery site that day -... More
