Sweet moments

The early morning birds can make a stop in Ekenäs Motel Marine to enjoy a rich, but affordable breakfast. There is no better way to begin a day than with a hotel breakfast!

If you are visiting Ekenäs on a market day, that is Wednesday or Saturday, head over to the Town Square, where you can wander around the stalls and taste local treats. Pick up some strawberries for an outing in the forest park Ramsholmen located only one kilometre from the town centre. Continue over the beautiful bridge to Högholmen and choose a perfect spot on the rocks for a picnic with a beautiful view over the archipelago.

Ekenäs is a real seaside idyll. Time flies when you walk hand in hand along the quaint winding streets of the Old Town. Stop by the charming Café Gamla Stan to enjoy their mouthwatering chocolate cake under the apple trees in the garden, or hide from the rain next to an open fire in the cozy 18th century-cottage. To finish off you visit, climb the Old Water Tower and take in the breathtaking 360-degree view that opens over the town. Can you spot all the places you have visited during the day?

Castles and lovers' paths

In Raseborg, there is plenty to see and do. Rent a car or bikes to visit the other pearls of Raseborg.

On a trip to Fiskars, you can learn about the history of the ironworks village, enjoy village life and watch the craftsmen create masterpieces. You can stop by the blacksmith's workshop or blow your own glass decorations at the glass studio. Taste the creations of the winner of Finland's Best Bakery in a yellow barrack next to the clock tower building right in the heart of Fiskars.

SkumppaA visit to Raseborg Castle Ruins takes you back to medieval times. Here you can enjoy a picnic, discover the beginning of Raseborg and explore the castle ruins. It is hard not to feel romantic while walking along the Lovers' path making a perfect ending for an intimate outing.

There is hardly any girl that has not dreamt about living in a princess castle. If the ruins were not enough, you can take your love to one of the most precious manors that we have in Finland, namely Svartå Manor. A perfect place for a romantic getaway, the manor offers something for those interested in art and history as well as a beautiful garden where you can take a stroll and invent the spookiest ghost stories. Continue your visit to the quaint restaurant Slottskrogen and enjoy a dinner in candlelight.

Outdoor activities

Make your date unforgettable by trying out a new activity together. Hop on your bikes to get to know the different parts of Raseborg as well as to enjoy the peaceful forest and lake scenery. The outdoor recreation centre in Västerby offers great hiking trails and you can also explore the nature by challenging your partner's Frisbee golf skills. If the sea calls you, rent a canoe and go paddling in the archipelago.

Beach life and midnight swimming

Summery days are best spent on a beach relaxing and enjoying each other's company. Find your favourite among the dozens of beaches that we have in Raseborg, ranging from long sandy beaches to more sheltered ones. In the centre of Ekenäs, you can take a tour on the minigolf track, whereas the archipelago-visitors can show off their putting skills on the new track in Sandnäsudd. Who is the first to make a hole-in-one? At the end of the day, enjoy the evening sun at Grabbskog träsk or Flacksjö or go on a midnight dip in the moonlight.
