Viikinsaari – an oasis in the city

Viikinsaari island is open again 28.5.-18.8.2019.

In addition to the dances at the pavilion, Viikinsaari island’s summer includes lots of live music, nature activities, summer theatre and themed happenings for kids and adults. The beautiful nature offers experiences for everyone, and the swimming beaches, playgrounds and the nature track around the island complete the perfect summer day. You can even bring your own sausages to cook on the barbecue spots, unless you’d prefer to enjoy a meal at the island’s Restaurant Viikinsaari.
