Finland has just introduced the world’s first phone-free tourist island, as visitors to Ulko-Tammio are being encouraged to stay offline this summer

Ulko-Tammio, in the Eastern Gulf of Finland National Park, is asking all to keep their phones switched off and in pockets all summer. The aim is to encourage holidaymakers to switch off their smart devices, take a break from social media and enjoy nature. Ulko-Tammio is believed to be the world’s first phone-free tourist island.

The Eastern Gulf of Finland boasts plenty of beautiful islands awaiting explorers. Rugged islands, lush swimming spots and charming coastal villages are all characterised by nature, peace and the Baltic Sea.



“The island of Ulko-Tammio, which is located off the coast of Hamina, will be phone-free to urge holidaymakers to switch off devices and to stop and enjoy the islands”, says Mats Selin from Visit Kotka-Hamina.

Staff of Parks & Wildlife Finland, which manages the island, are also excited about the campaign. “This is a great initiative that could be implemented in other nature and recreational destinations, too”, Joel Heino, Parks Manager. Outdoor Recreation and Visitor Management at Parks & Wildlife Finland, says.
Let’s see if digital fasting holidays will take off.
