About
Description of the trip: Trip will be done by boat (AMT 170BRs) to the archipelago of Tammisaari consisted of 1,300 islands. During the trip, we drive at varying speeds through the island paths and learn about the nature of the archipelago and life. The guide explains the nature, animals, housing, and also tells you stories about history and the present of the archipelago. Also fishing is possible! You get to feel the breeze of sea wind, admire the rugged nature of the rocky islands and the open sea. You will get a chance to experience the old Jussarö Island with its history filled with mining and army base, or visit the nature walk in Älgö Island and the fishing estate in Rödjan. During the archipelago tour we will drive along the narrow island routes with varying degrees of speed. We admire the genuine nature with various kinds of birds, old fishing facilities, fences, as well as the archipelago of modern construction. If we are in luck, we can even see a seal rise to the surface i

This locally admired gentleman knows what he is doing and does that well. If the beautiful nature and archipelago of Tammisaari does not remove stress, presence of Guide-Matti will. Even though he's guided for decades, you feel yourself special guest. There are 1300 islands and Matti knows where to go to see the best of the best places in the vast area. We were camping on an island, went to sauna, swimming, bbq, fishing, took a tour round the central achipelago area, visited local cultural heritage sites, fishing villages and learned a lot!

It's a great tour. Matti took us to the forest and picked a look of blue and red berries. After that, he gave us plastic bags to throw rubbishes and delivered lemmmon to wash hands (blue berry makes ur hands blue :) ). He was really considerate. And he guided us to two museum which had a lot of interesting collections. He didn't force us to buy anything but just guided us to interesting and enjoyed the great nature of Finland.

We spent a wonderful day with Matti exploring the archipelago and its 1300 islands. He is warm, witty, knowledgeable and an excellent navigator. He is also an absolute delight to be with. We learned so much about the local flora and fauna as well as the culture, language and history. Thank you so much, Matti!! I highly recommend this tour!

We had the pleasure of joining Guide Matti for a two-hour archipelago cruise on his motor boat. Matti knows the waters by heart and told us interesting stories about the local areas and points of interest as well as pointed out some of the archipelago birds (White-tailed Eagle and osprey as highlights) for me to photograph.

Matti is also happy to accommodate specific tour requests. For example, we wanted to maximise the cruising time and therefore did not visit any of the islands on foot. He also dropped us off directly to the pier of the hotel we were staying.

If you're looking for a boat excursion in Tammisaari then Matti is your Guide!

Our family (with 5 yo) really enjoyed our 3+ hour boat tour with Matti. Such a beautiful way to see the best of Finnish nature. Matti was an excellent captain and guide and was very intent on giving us wonderful memories. We would definitely recommend his tour if in the Tammisaari area.

I think it was wonderful to have a guided boat trip to the archipelago and the national park. Everything was great and we got a good overview of the National Park and its wildlife and the mining village of Jussarö. I wholeheartedly recommend the national park in Tammisaari Archipelago and guidematti tours!

We just finished a 4 hours boat-tour (5.15 PM to 9.15 PM) in the tammasaari area with Matti, that was awesome. Matti is very knowledgeable and he makes sure that you learn everything about the archipelago, the local animals and trees. His boat is very safe and you also have time for a 40min hike on a beautiful island. Then comes the snack time at sunset with coffee and tea. Don't forget to ask Matti about his famous joke about Finnish and Swedish neighbours !

Initially I was just looking to charter a boat to get to an island to camp for one night, but ended up booking Matti who was very helpful in deciding where to stay. We started off heading towards the biggest island of the archipelago but along the way we went past an island owned by a group dedicated to keeping the archipelago clean. He told us about the group and that people are welcome to stay there and use the amenities for free, but we have to clean up after ourselves, easy decision to make. Along the way he tells us about different animals species native to the islands, when their breeding seasons are, etc. The following day he came to pick us up right on time and we rode around the archipelago and finished the tour. Highly recommend!

It wasn’t summer yet so most of the activities were not available. Through Helsinki tourist information center I got to know Matti who had kindly take me out to the archipelago in his boat. He agreed to meet me at the train station and even text me the details of my train ride. Matti also drove me round the town and showed me where the tourist info center is, places I could have lunch, etc.. The boat ride was interesting and enjoyable with Matti’s sharing..thank you!

The trip with Matti was excellent. We took a small boat to cruise through the archipelago and finally landed on Älgön. The walking tour over the Island was super interesting and informative. Matti knows a lot and answered all of questions patiently. He is a charming, friendly and fun person and a very competent guide. We fully recommend his trips!
