Ruissalo is a verdant oasis close to the city and easily accessible. If you want to experience the beauty of the archipelago as well as enjoy a Finnish campfire barbeque then this is the tour for you.

The island of Ruissalo is a unique haven of nature, with the City of Turku working hard to conserve the island’s environmental assets through annual management planning. Ruissalo is known for its impressive oak trees, several hundreds of years old. On the nature walk, experience the magic of the old oaks and if you’re lucky you might see woodpeckers, hares or even deer. Ruissalo has plenty of interesting flora and fauna to observe.

After the nature walk you might get a bit hungry – cue the barbeque! At the seaside campfire, tasty grilled sausages and delicious marshmallows are waiting for you to enjoy. Relax and breathe a lung full of fresh sea air and take a dip in the beautiful Airisto waves.
