Hanko Seaside

Spend an unforgettable day at the sea. Outside the coastline of Hanko you can find three magnificent lighthouses and many picturesque islands, that you can reach by your own boat or by cruise from the Eastern Harbour.

Visit the tallest lighthouse in the Nordics, Bengtskär,  see the seals of the Baltic Sea on a cruise in the outer archipelago or take a look at the historical rock carvings at Pikes’s Gut. Or take a day trip to the island of Gunnarsörarna – a real nature experience. Maybe you will even spend the night in this gorgeous place.
