Pargas

Pargas is an archipelago community. Breathe in the archipelago air by the open sea and you will feel refreshed and free.

Pargas is the largest area in the Archipelago Sea, and it is known as the capital of the archipelago. It is surrounded by water, enabling you to experience genuine archipelago life. It is easy to get around the archipelago thanks to the numerous bridges, cable ferries and connecting ferry lines.

The archipelago offers visitors a wide range of services, from hotels and guest houses to restaurants and summer cafes. Activities include sailing, scuba diving, golf, hiking, cycling, canoeing, horse riding and fishing.

A holiday in Pargas offers plenty to see and do. Visit Nagu and Iniö, where you can enjoy the atmosphere of idyllic archipelago life and the beauty of the marine nature. Admire the Korpo stone church, one of Finland's most beautiful mediaeval churches, and take in a summer music festival. Visit the rocky island of Jurmo to try the island's famous smoked flounder and see the Utö lighthouse dating back to 1753.

Travel through the diverse natural surroundings of the Archipelago National Park, admiring the woody meadows and smooth rocks formed by the Ice Age. It will soon become clear why this archipelago is known as the world's most beautiful.

Many boaters head for Pargas and the surrounding archipelago for sailing holidays. If your skills are up to it, you can rent yourself a boat and take to the water on your own. Otherwise, you can take a water taxi.

You can also get to know Pargas by bicycle or on foot. If you are a hiker, head out on the seven-mile Korsberg hiking route or one of the shorter routes. You can pick up a guide map at the Sattmark café. The hiking routes pass through a wide range of landscapes, and your path may take you past the historical Lofsdal manor house.

You can reach Pargas by car, bus, bicycle and boat. The nearest airports are in Turku and Helsinki.

Pargas offers so much to see and do, thanks to the thousands of islands and skerries, that it will not be possible to do everything in one visit. The idyllic beauty of the archipelago will keep you coming back to Pargas time and again.
