The exclusive nature with some rare species of flora and fauna makes Hurppu an exceptional spot for travellers seeking peace of mind from scenic splendor and outdoor activity.

A 2,000 m2 stone platform extending to the sea offers a natural stage not only for observing the marine life, but also enjoying a selection of cultural events.

With a history tracing back to the Russian Imperator Nikolai II, this is the place where the past stories meet the present leisure time.


With thousands of migrating birds every year, Hurppu is a true paradise for birdwatchers. In summer, the numerous butterflies complete the effect.


A seafront location and a pier for yachts allows for an easy access by boat from the Helsinki metropolitan area, from the Baltic countries and Russia. It also makes Hurppu an ideal base for exploring the attractions of the Virolahti and Kotka-Hamina region and the Gulf of Finland national park.
