Situated at the mouth of the Aura river, with rugged hills and valleys spread all around it, Turku is the perfect vacation spot for those who enjoy the outdoors. There are a number of great beaches and swimming locales, plenty of hiking and cycling routes, and some lovely nature reserves to explore. The region is particularly popular with fishermen, boaters and canoeists, who enjoy the ever changing seascapes around the archipelago, and there are many boats for charter.
