Coastal getaways: See a different side of Finland | Finland |
Just a stone’s throw from the capital are the coastal towns of Fiskars, Raasepori and Hanko, which make for fabulous day trip destinations.

Helsinki gets hot and crowded in the summer. There are many great getaway destinations within a 100-km radius of the capital. If you are craving for a carefree day outside the city, a daytrip to Fiskars, Raasepori or Hanko may be just the thing. Fiskars is an idyllic, old village located 90 km from Helsinki and is reachable by car, bus or train. Trains and buses from Helsinki to Karjaa (Karis) leave at least every hour, and from Karjaa it’s a 30-minute bus ride to Fiskars.
