Helsinki City Escape III: Lammassaari

A short 20 minute busride from the centre lies Lammassaari, an island that is quite densely populated by summer houses (M√∂kkis), a bird-watching tower and a little forest path around the island. In this case though “the journey is the destination”, as the way to Lammassaari itself is a hidden path of wooden planks through the marshy swamplands that surround it. Always a little adventure, and you can visit the sheep as well. Wonderful year-round.
