Wonderful walks
Hanko is a charming place all year round and there are many places worth discovering. You can choose a historic theme for your walk or just go with the flow and see where the road takes you. Pick your favorite walk or try them all!

The Architectural Walk in Hanko Town Centre
Let the buildings come to life and tell you their own history. Despite the short history of the town, Hanko has an astounding richness in architecture. At a comfortable walking distance you will find works by Theodor Höijer, Lars Sonck, Selim A Lindqvist, Waldemar Aspelin, Wiwi Lönn och Viljo Revell among others. Get your own guide brochure, or book a guided architectural walk at the Tourist Office.

Birdwatching in Hanko
Hankoniemi is the place to go for birdwatchers. A protip is to walk from the base of Tulliniemi out to the peak of Uddskatan (about 6,7 km back and forward). This will not only give you the possibility to spot birds, but it will also give you the opportunity to explore and enjoy some great views. Halias organises guided tours for groups on the area, and these are booked in advance opastukset@halias.fi
