Ekenäs Archipelago National Park

Ekenäs kansallispuisto

Islands off the coast of Tammisaari, more popularly know as the Ekenäs Archipelago National Park. This park is located about 80 kilometers west of Helsinki, and 18 kilometers south of Ekenäs (Tammisaari). In Helsinki, begin driving on road 51 toward Ekenäs or Tammisaari. Once in Tammisaari, drive toward Sommorö, which is in Skärlandet. This is the closest you can get to the largest of the islands, Älgö.

At this point, if you are an experienced kayaker, it's around a 9 kilometer boat stretch to the Rödjan Nature Information Hut in Ä lgö. Once in Älgö there is a campsite and a dry toilet (outdoor toilet).

Find out about charter boat rides to the islands at the Ekenäs visitor center. Address: Ekenäs Visitor Center, Rantapuistikko, 10600 Tammisaari, Finland
