Guided tours in Hanko

Make more of your trip to Hanko on a guided tour. Choose a bus tour, a walk with a special theme or a bike tour. We actualize guided tours according to your wishes, alternatives range from a visit to the Water Tower to a tour with a historic theme. During the summer there are public guided walks in the city center.

 

You can also book a guided boat tour to the archipelago, for example to the famous “Pike’s Gut”, a narrow strait between the islands Tullholmen and Kobben outside of Tulliniemi. There are over 640 registered rock carvings from as early as the 15th century. This “visitor’s book of the archipelago” consists of names and coats of arms of nobility, soldiers and tradesmen.  An ideal group size for guided walks is under 25 persons (max. 30). We recommend booking more than one guide for bigger groups.
