The Aurajoentie Tourist Road
A new tourist road was established in Finland for the first time in a decade, and it is not just any road. The Aurajoentie road travels the entire 70 kilometres from Turku to Oripää in our national landscape in the Aurajokilaakso. The Aurajoentie Tourist Road has its own logo.
Aurajoentie is a historic Varkaantie that runs along the west side of the Aurajoki. Aurajoentie is a national landscape and a nationally valuable built cultural environment (RKY) with dozens of interesting landscape and cultural sites and service companies. Few Helsinki residents know where Lieto, Aura, Pöytyä or Oripää are located – but everyone knows where the Aurajoki is. The tourist road is likely to raise awareness of the sub-region, crystallise its appeal and create a nationally renowned brand for both tourists and residents and entrepreneurs. The tourist road is primarily a tourist product.
