weekend walk along the bay


Another really nice walk in the Helsinki area is the tour from Lauttasaari to Torpanranta. On the way you pass the islands of Kaskisaari, Lehtisaari and Kuusisaari and are always close to the water. You get to see few of the nicest neighborhoods of Helsinki. At the end of the tour (takes around 1:30h) you can reward yourself with a rest at the quite pricy but beautifully located café Torpanranta while watching the kite skiers on the gliding over the icy bay. The weather this weekend is ideal for this walk. In the sun it is even warm enough to sit outside. Here some impressions from today.
