Barösund- a perfect weekend destination near Helsinki

An island vacation, near yet different, easy to reach what else do you need for a short dream vacation?

Different: Isolated from the mainland, (reachable only by boat), Barösund is so different from other common places where bus, car and metro are means of commuting.

There is a guest harbor and refueling point. People are stopping by for refueling their boat, talking about fishing trip or continuation of their voyage.

At the evening the lady at the ice cream kiosk went back to home by her own boat. My little one was so impressed seeing that she sketched the scene instantly.

We stayed at Villa Sofia, amidst of the nature.
