Went there early in the spring to watch the birds move from the south to the tundra. It might be a bit windy there but if the weather is fine then this will be an truly different experience. The nature is down to the minimum...More

This is one of the Lighthouse islands where you can visit. And even spend a night in the actual Lighthouse. That has to be prebooked and arranged though. The ride there takes approximately 1 hour from Vuosaari harbour in Helsinki. We had an arranged boat...More

Ok, it's formally within the boundaries of Porvoo, but Söderskär Lighthouse is some 25 kms far out at sea and difficult to reach. Should you get a connection there, consider going - it's raw nature at a group of islands in the Suomenlahti, Bay of...More

Lighthouses are so fascinating and Söderskär lighthouse isn't an exception. It's a beautiful place, not too far from Helsinki or Porvoo and well worth a day trip. Just remember to pack some picnic food with you or you can also dine on the boat or...More
