About this destination

Raseborg, on the Finnish south coast midway between the cities of Helsinki and Turku, is closer than you might think. The journey takes just over an hour from those cities, but when you arrive, you step into a different world.
Here you can really experience tranquility, easy living and small town charm. The municipality of Raseborg was named by a medieval castle with the same name, and there a plenty of other historical places to visit. Discover the popular artisan villages of Fiskars and Billnäs, admire the narrow alleys and wooden houses of Old town Ekenäs or find peace and quiet by the stately Svartå Manor. If you prefer nature you can cycle in beautiful landscapes, take a meditative walk in the woods and pick berries and mushrooms. Breathe the fresh sea air on a beach in the archipelago or go on canoeing trip. Enjoy local artisan foods and drinks at cozy cafes or restaurants and buy fine ingredients at markets and farms.
