Here, the diversity of the flora and fauna rivals any other major nature park in the country.

The fun skate parks in Fiskars and Karjaa offer challenges for the older ones as well.

Raseborg is a paradise for swimmers with its beautiful beaches and public swimming pool. With a little bit of luck, you’ll end up having the beach to yourself.
