Welcome to the Viking islands!
concept "Viking Islands - the southernmost archipelago in
Finland" stands for the Hitis archipelago, more precisely the area
that used to be the municipality of Hitis. The thousand-square-kilometer area
- of which 90% is water - consists of 2000 islands. The archipelago of
Hitis has an intriguing history and can rightfully be called the Viking
islands, since in the Viking Age there was a harbor and a trading place,
the only one found in Finland. The Eastern route of the Vikings passed
Viking Islands is a registered trademark that exists for the purpose of
presenting the exceptional beauty and services in the area both nationally and
internationally, in collaboration with local entrepreneurs as well as the
municipality of Kimitoön. The main project is this website, which you now
can see in its original form, and soon you will be able to enjoy in the
new, mobile-friendly version. Information about and links to sights and
tourist services in the Hitis area are collected and presented here.
