Located just a few kilometres from Turku, the enchanting island of Ruissalo is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. The island has the largest oak forests in Finland, making Ruissalo the perfect home for tawny owls, hermit beetles, and hundreds of other species dependent on these ancient trees. With a network of trails that zigzag across the island, walking, cycling, or even skiing is the best way to experience this outstanding natural diversity. Ruissalo is easily accessible from Turku; it is serviced by the Föli bus network and the Föli water bus sails to the island in the summer months. There are also plenty of superb dining and accommodation options, suitable for every type of traveller.
