Sail between the islets of the picture perfect archipelago of Turku, just a few hours from Helsinki.
There surely can be no better way of experiencing the wonder of the Turku archipelago than by sailing a course between some of its 20,000 islands and islets. Make your journey through this extraordinary seascape on our 7m Soling Classic open match-boats for a safe, fun and unforgettable sailing experience. No prior knowledge of sailing is needed as you will be guided throughout your journey by your sailing Captain.
Your launch point is the beautiful Villa Wolax, a center of sailing for generations and gateway to the Turku archipelago, as well as a renowned destination in itself, situated as it is on the Island of Kuusisto.
After your sailing adventure, partake in that most traditional of Nordic customs – the deeply relaxing sauna. Fully facilitated, the sauna experience is inseparable from the Finnish way of life. Follow your healing sauna with a visit to the jacuzzi or, if you dare, be like a Finn and plunge into the cool waters of the ocean just a few paces away.
Cuisine at Villa Wolax is famous in the region – a modern take on traditional Nordic fare with seasonal ingredients sourced locally in a glorious setting. Enjoy your two-course lunch at leisure before departing the archipelago. And after a full day in one of nature’s most beautiful settings, we’ll get you back before the sun sets, ready for your evening in the capital.
