Kvarken's Sea Monster – Escape Game

(Uppdated 30.8. 2022)
Experience the Kvarken Archipelago World Heritage in a new way and play the escape game at the visitor centre World Heritage Gateway by the Replot bridge.

The scaly sea monster's mouth is open and spiky teeth are visible. Long thin lines come out of the nostrils.

Our escape game can be played by adults and children from age 7 upwards. School-aged children are recommended to play with an adult. The exhibition room is accessible, so the game is also suitable for people with reduced mobility with an assistant.
The game can be played in English, Finnish, or Swedish.

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.
