Family Summer Holiday in Southern Finland 14-22.8.

Family Summer Holiday in Southern Finland 14-22.8.

Charming small tour for your family mainly by public transfer. Summer at its best in Naantali and Fiskars. Accommodation chosen for you is so nostalgic and genuine. 

Naantali  is an idyllic small town on west coast of Finland by the sea. The local claim it is the most suynny place in Finland. Hotel Palo is a family hotel located in a nostalgic wooden building built in 1946.  Walking distance to the Moominworld Theme Park is 700m, waterfront restaurants and guest marina being on the way. There is no need for a car, since the old city and the city center attractions and services are all within walking distance (bus station 500m). For families with children, the Moomins and the nearby playground and Nunnanlahti Beach make for an enjoyable stay.

Moominworld is a perfect combination of Tove Jansson's saga and authentic archipelago nature. The Moomin island offers plenty to see, do and experience. You can start from the morning, get an afternoon nap and get back as it closes only at 18.00 and the ticket is valid for the whole day. 

There is also a traditional Midsummer Fire on the evening of the 22nd at 23.00 and dancing at Kuparivuori buut I guess all these are too late in the evening fro you. Part of the shops are open. Each year there is also some other program by the sea but it will be published later (I'll send it to you of course translated).

Fiskars ironworks was founded 1649. Today Fiskars Corporation is an international company, whose consumer products for home, garden and outdoors are know for their functionality and cutting-edge design. Fiskars Village again has become a center of handicrafts. Many artisans have their workhops in Fiskars, which makes it an interesting place to visit. You can spend your day by visiting handicrafts stores and the summer exhibition of the Fiskars Artisansa at the Old Granary.  The village is small, so it is easy to walk from shop to shop, sitting in the park or popping in to one of the nice cafeterias. there is a big playground for children in the middle of the village as well as a small grocery shop.

You will stay in a cabin called Pikku Talo (=The Little House) at B&B Villiruusu (Wild Rose), which only rents out this one house. The little house is decorated in country romantic style. There is a master bedroom, a small kitchen and bathroom. What makes this accommodation unique is a traditional Finnish sauna. your host will show you, how to warm it up.
