What's Currently Happening in Bothnian Sea National Park

Archipelago without your own boat at summer 2022

(Uppdated 14.6. 2022)
Archipelago destinations in southern Finland are as good as seaside holidays get, far from the hustle and bustle of cities. If you have not yet experienced the laid-back summer breeze or wonderful nature of the archipelago, its national parks offer many easy day trips and even overnight visits.
Metsähallitus's partner companies take you to different locations in the archipelago on water buses, boats and cruises. Some destinations are serviced by free state-owned ferries.

Check for Warnings

When forest and grass fire warnings (en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi) are in effect, fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue. A fire can be also lit in fireplaces at wilderness and other huts. Always use extreme caution when handling fire. The one who lights a fire is always responsible for its safe use. Please note, that making fire at these campfire sites can be banned locally.
