Turku Castle and Old Town of Naantali

Turku Castle and Old Town of Naantali

Embark on a journey through time and beauty on a Yachting Land Adventure to the heart of Finnish history and charm.

Begin your adventure at the port, where the meeting of the river Aura and the sea sets the stage for a day of exploration. Step back in time as you travel by coach to the awe-inspiring Castle of Turku, Finland's oldest preserved fortress dating back to the late 13th century. A private guided tour will unveil the secrets of this medieval stronghold, offering glimpses into life in the 15th century. Marvel at the impressive collection of medieval treasures, including wooden sculptures and precious artifacts crafted from gold and silver.

Leaving the castle behind, your next venture is to the enchanting old town of Naantali, a picturesque haven nestled just outside Turku. With its cobblestone streets and traditional spa charm, Naantali captivates visitors with its timeless allure. A stop is made at the presidential summer residence, Kultaranta, before enjoying a brief orientation and a refreshment break. Afterwards, explore at your leisure through Naantali's quaint streets, perhaps discovering the whimsical world of Moomin on one of the islands.

Rejoin your coach for the return to Turku, where your unforgettable journey concludes, leaving you with cherished memories of Finland's rich history and natural beauty.
