Turku - Hiking

Hi all,

probably I'll go to to Turku (end August - begining September) and I would like to know something about hiking in mountains in this area.

Are there any mountains nearby Turku good for this staff ( I want to be tired doing that ;))

I must say that I don't like sightseeing.

Any ideas?

Thank you all for any help!

Hi there!

There are no mountains around in Turku area! Turku is a very maritime city with a great archipelago on it's coast. (Actually there are three archipelagos along the ship route between Stockholm and Turku (also called Åbo in Swedish): the Turku archipelago, Åland archipelago and Stockholm archipelago. On the land side the landscape is very flat agricultural land and provided great hiking possibilities (like upstream along the Aura river) - but nothing that even remotely resembles mountains!

If you want to hike up and down hills and mountains in Finland then Lapland is your destination!
