Harakka island in Helsinki is known for its nature and hatching birds. But in the summer they also organise guided nature adventurers for kids, some with special themes. We participated on one adventure on July 9th, and my kids loved it!
It was a lovely sunny day, and the adventure started by the guide reading out a letter that had washed up in a bottle. The tour was for 4-10year old kids, my kids 7 and almost 6 were the perfect audience. The kids learned some details of sea life and plants but also just had fun walking on boards, doing water graffiti on the rocks etc. Perfect holiday fun.
Harakka is easy to reach by a boat from the jetty by Cafe Ursula in Merisatama. A return trip takes about 2 minutes and costs 5e/adult and 2e/child. The times for the island adventures are best found on Facebook by searching for events on “Lasten saariseikkailu Harakka”.
