Welcome to Western Uusimaa, Southpoint Finland!

During the summer of 2015, Friman Travel will arrange day tours to Fiskars Village.

Western Uusimaa is a region located along the southern coast of Finland, between Helsinki and Turku. Western Uusimaa’s easternmost municipality is Kirkkonummi and Hanko, the southernmost town of Finland, marks the most westerly point of the region. To the north, the region also includes the many lakes of Lohja. Beyond the south coast, thousands of islands in the archipelago are scattered like a jigsaw puzzle in the sea.
