Program and activities
The guides of Archipelago Activities organize program and activities on a weekly basis during high season and also all year round on request. Does your work community or team need some relaxation in nature? Or maybe you have a need to get out and move! Whatever you want, we can customize different programs outdoors. Our happy guides have a great diversity of know-how among them. We would love to customize an experience package that suits you.
EXPERCIENCE WALK - WE ARRANGE THIS WALK EVERY WEEK DURING HIGH SEASON
Experience one of Finland's most diverse areas. A chill walk among precious trees and singing birds is good for both body and soul.

Our wilderness guides may also reveal what the different tree species have been used for and are still used for today.
FOREST HIKE - WE ARRANGE THIS WALK EVERY WEEK DURING HIGH SEASON
We hike in the beautiful forests near Ekenäs, where we go with a guided transport leaving from the nature center in Ekenäs. During the hike we get acquainted with the area’s nature and history. We finish the hike by a lake and a shelter, where we enjoy a light lunch and coffee and tea. After that we go back together to the nature center.
TOUR BY ELECTRIC BIKE TO HANKO - WE ARRANGE THIS WALK EVERY WEEK DURING HIGH SEASON
This is an unique opportunity to get acquainted with nature, culture and history in a new way. Join our guide on electric bikes from Ekenäs to Hanko. We take the train back to Ekenäs after the tour. During the tour you will hear about the area's nature and history, pause in interesting and scenic places and enjoy lunch with a sea view.
Slide into the water with your kayak as the sun drops behind the horizon and the full moon rises. If we are lucky, the sky is clear and we see both stars and the moon. The lovely Finnish summer night is never pitch-dark and the glow of the moon reinforces the sight of islands and cuttings. We pause on a small beach, enjoy snacks and tea made of birch leaves picked by our own guides.
A feel good day in the nature for groups and teams - with focus on well-being, teamwork and communication. We have the possibility of customizing a shorter or broader package depending on your wish. In these cases the focus can be on what your group needs the most - for example getting to know each other better, solve mutual problems, communicate more effectively or simply having fun together!
We prepare a three course menu in beautiful forest environment outside of Ekenäs. The tour starts with a guided bus transport from the Ekenäs nature centre.
