An Island full of historical buildings that have been transported all accross Finland. Definite must see if you are interested in nature (great sight seeing) or history. As a side note, president Kekkonen used to do his walk around the Island.

We decided to walk out to the island, which was a bit of a mistake (there are plenty of buses out there!), but it was worth it. Highlights were a stunning replica iron age village, and some particularly friendly squirrels!

This is an impressive collection of varied buildings from the past. Be amazed at the workmanship in the cutting of the timbers for the log buildings. The staff were young and enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable. The walk around the island is well supported with maps and information.

The season is over and everything is closed except for an ice cream kiosk at the bus parking lot.Sure it's a nice walk along the back roads where you can see different timber buildings from different parts of Finland.Much, however, looks to need a budget of gain to be restored to its former beauty Guess the everything will be slightly...

You walk along a bridge from the city (short, beautiful way) and you are in the past of agricultural Finland. The nonprofit , not luxurious scene is so attractive now , when everything costs. You can sit in small cafes and have an icecream to go. They also organize sometimes folkdance shows (haven´t seen)

This is a very lovely little island, you can walk all over just a hlaf day. You can see squirrels which eats from your hand and ducks which stealing your snacks if you don't care. You get a little exhibition of the Finnish nature and living if you have only 2-3 days in Finland. Definitely you have to visit.

On our Baltic cruise we only had short time in Helsinki and part of our tour was this island. It was a great break of walking through nature, seeing wildlife and very old wood buildings. There was also a small cafe that made their own ice cream. Really nice to see.

A nice walk in the forest, not much to see and do but it was worth it for the tame red squirrels that populate the place.
