In English

Vartiosaari Summer Activity Centre is an island in front of Laajasalo and Tammisalo.

The summer activities for young people in Vartiosaari are organised through youth centres. Vartiosaari is an excellent place to organize camps and group activities as it provides indoor accommodation even for larger groups.

Furubacka – the main building in the Vartiosaari camp area – can accommodate 24 people. Visitors can organise a range of different camps and events in the area. The island also offers hiking and paddling opportunities, as well as sauna time in a floating sauna and the chance to enjoy the view of the rocky scenery. Our camp area is intended for use by youth organisations, youth groups, and residents. The area also has space for tents.

When you have set up a trip to Vartiosaari, we provide free boat transportation from Laajasalo, the easiest way to get to the pier is to take the bus 88 or 89 from Herttoniemi metro station and get off at the Kiiltomadonpolku bus stop.

In the summertime (May to August), Vartiosaari has its own maintenance team consisting of young people hired as summer workers. Would you like to spend your summer working on the island? You can also volunteer to work at the camp island.
