Helsinki’s summer offerings highlight wellness

Published on : Monday, May 16, 2016

Visit HelsinkiThe recreational island of Vallisaari between Santahamina and Suomenlinna will open up to the public in May. Visitors will be able to enjoy an outing to see the unspoilt nature and well preserved historic fortifications.

 

In its first year Vallisaari can be explored along marked trails. The Alexander Trail is 3 kilometres long and the King’s Island Trail is 2.5 kilometres long. The trails can also be combined to make one long trail.

 

A café will open in the spring, and information boards, rest areas and dry toilets are also planned. A guest harbour for 48 boats will open by the beginning of summer.

 

For families, strollers and prams can be used on the island, but the trails are not fully accessible due to the rough terrain and steep climbs. The trails are not lighted or maintained in wintertime. Visitors should stick to the paths, as there are many cliffs and other dangerous spots on the island. Services are also only just being introduced to the island. Hiking boots and water bottles are recommended.

 

A ferry connection from the Market Square will begin operating on 14 May 2016. Camping overnight on the island is not permitted. The island is maintained by Metsähallitus, South Finland Nature Services.
