It’s always a good idea to book your hotel room well in advance, because this is a popular weekend in Hanko. As of this writing, there are still a few rooms available at Villa Maija: two rooms for Saturday 1.10 and four rooms for Friday 30.9. You can make your reservation conveniently on our website.

Welcome to Hanko for a great marathon experience!
