Trip Planner: Europe / Finland / Southwest Finland / Kimito Island / Archipelago National Park
Archipelago National Park (Swedish: Skärgårdshavets nationalpark, Finnish: Saaristomeren kansallispuisto) is a national park in Southwest Finland. It was established in 1983 and includes 500 km2 (190 sq mi) of land area. Most of the land is on islands smaller than 1 km2 (0.39 sq mi). The park encompasses about 2,000 of the 8,400 islets and skerries within the cooperative area. The larger islands are mainly owned by their inhabitants. Archipelago National Park is part of the UNESCO biosphere reserves and received a PAN Parks certificate in 2007.Take the guesswork out of planning a Kimito Island vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
The park encompasses most of the Archipelago Sea region east of Åland and south of the main islands of Korpo, Nagu, Pargas, and Kimitoön. The park is mainly situated in the (former) municipalities of Nagu, Korpo, Houtskär, Iniö, Hitis, and southern Pargas. The Archipelago Sea Biosphere reserve consists of the national park's cooperative area and the rest of the islands in the Åboland archipelago only accessible by boat or ferry.
One of the objectives of the national park is to protect the archipelago's cultural landscape—such as the considerable areas used for traditional agriculture—in addition to the natural landscape. To this end, the cooperative area is an essential extension of the national park.

The Archipelago national park is seriously the jewel in the crown of the national parks within Finland. I wanted to do a cycle tour of the park and made enquiries at the tourist information board...

The National park covering the nearly whole Archipelago means that there is plenty for the whole Family to be occupied with. Most of the ferries between the islands are on Finnferries and are totally free for vehicles and passengers I would really recommend staying at least a few days even in the winter if cottage is suitable for winter use some are only supposed for summer use
Nice environment with natural beauty .
An utterly beautiful sailing region with well kept travel islands and pristine and sheltered natural harbors.
The nature is fantastic. Not crowded.
Fantastic experience! Weather was warm, even hot, sea was really calm and Sceneries were stunning. Fishing was poor and algae growth started to bloom.
