Welcome to Kimito Island & Archipelago National Park
Kimito (Finnish: Kemiö) is a sprawling coastal island – Finland's largest – located 65km southeast of Turku. Numerous inlets and waterways weave their way through the forested isle, which is dotted with seaside villages. It's worth taking your time exploring the island, as there are some fascinating sights along the way, including a historic church in Dragsfjärd and an art-filled manor house in Kimito.
But the main attraction is further south. You guessed it: more islands. Kimito is the main jumping-off point for Archipelago National Park, a scattering of spectacular islands that stretches south and west into the sea. Island attractions include Finland's tallest lighthouse, a century-old fortress island and a re-created Viking village. Cruises depart from Kasnäs, the harbour on the southern extreme of Kimito island.
