Lake ice walking

Wintertime in Finland is known as the period of magic and chill. After many weeks of cold temperatures ranging up to -25 C, the sea becomes frozen. This is the time to walk lakes or the sea with friends and family.

Watching the neighbours

Not far, but definitely on the other side. Summertime at the archipelago is relaxing outdoors experience by the seaside.

Interaction with holiday people

A summer day may look like this on an archipelago. Kids go with mother for a swim at the pier while the father does something on the boat.
