Under an hour’s drive from Helsinki and Hanko and about one and a half hours from Turku, there is Inkoo with its beautiful rural landscapes. Within convenient transport connections, travellers are offered peace, interesting heritage and local area sites and relaxing leisure time. The traditional summers of childhood are still in full bloom in Inkoo.
Farmhouse tourism has arisen at the old farms and the beautiful archipelago, with its waterways, is perfect for swimming, fishing and boating. The harbour for guests in the middle of the village centre is fit to be admired by others too, for example from the terrace of the atmospheric Café Wilhelmsdal.
If taking it easy isn’t your thing, take a bike with you and ride along the old King’s Road to the impressive ironworks setting at Fagervik or take a detour from the route to the summer market of Barösund. Interesting places for the whole family to visit are also the cultural history museum of Gammelgården and the Degerby Igor museum, the main theme of which is the Porkkala Parenthesis.
For active exercise enthusiasts, Inkoo offers numerous indoor and outdoor exercise facilities and canoeing and riding, for example. There are also many caches to be hunted down for geocachers.
Inkoo is a popular chalet area and the population nearly triples in the summer. This can also be seen in the services: the grocer’s, chemist’s, library and many well-being services are all within walking distance. Cafes, restaurants, gift shops, clothes shops and galleries are all also nearby.
When you want to enjoy high-quality and lasting local area tourism, head to Inkoo. From Helsinki, you can reach the centre of Inkoo directly and conveniently by coach and you can get by local train to the station of Inkoo, about five kilometres from the centre of the village. However, a car or a bicycle is a good means of transport in the wider Inkoo. You can book transportation from a local taxi-boat company to the archipelago.
